During a working visit to the Poltava Onlast, Minister of Culture Yevheniy Nyshchuk spoke with the cultural sector employees, residents of amalgamated hromadas of the Poltava Oblast, and reviewed presentations of the village, settlement councils of the rayon and AHs.
Besides, in the village of Novi Sanzhary, the Minister joined the opening of the oblast festivity and folk-art review dedicated to the 250th anniversary of the birth of I.P. Kotlyarevsky, classic of the Ukrainian literature.
“The Poltava Oblast is an amazing land permeated with culture and art. On the one hand, it is important to preserve and multiply the cultural heritage of the ancestors, on the other hand – to transform it into new modern forms. This is the very development of creative industries actively discussed now all over the world, this is the basis for creating conditions for a creative economy. It is pleasant to see that the Poltava Oblast is very active in these processes. A striking example is the development of a unique Reshetylivka “white on white” embroidery, this element was added to the National List of Intangible Cultural Heritage, and now the Government of Ukraine has supported the creation of the All-Ukrainian Centre for Embroidery and Carpeting in Reshetylivka settlement. Or the development of Opishnia ceramics, which, having its ancient roots, is gaining new forms today, becoming a true contemporary art. All this has all the prospects to become an important component of the economic development of the region and brightly represent the country in the world,” said Yevheniy Nyshchuk.
The Minister also added that increase of the level of remuneration for cultural institutions specialists is one of the priority issues for the Ministry of Culture. Currently, there is full support of the Government in these matters, and we see examples of local authorities’ understanding of the priority role of cultural institutions, which are the place for people to unite and communicate in hromadas.
