Cultural institutions of the city of Dnipro should work during martial law

On August 10, Oleksandr Tkachenko visited the front-line Dnipro region. The Minister of Culture and Information Policy held a number of working meetings, in particular, with representatives of cultural institutions of Dnipropetrovsk region, as well as the Head of the Dnipropetrovsk Regional Military Administration. It was about urgent issues of the cultural sphere during the war: the preservation and evacuation of heritage, the beginning of the academic year in art education institutions, the continuation of the work of cultural institutions and creative groups.

“Cultural institutions of the city of Dnipro should work during martial law. We understand that in cities that are not far from hostilities, there should be an algorithm for the activities of museums, theaters, educational institutions, and creative groups, different from other peaceful cities. Despite all the difficulties, we are looking for those mechanisms that will be acceptable for this or that city. For me, it is important to get an opinion of people who work in the field of culture, what they think and what mechanism of cooperation they consider to be the most effective,” said Oleksandr Tkachenko.

According to the Minister, several war crimes against cultural heritage have already been recorded in Dnipropetrovsk region. “It is hardly possible to talk about a full-fledged restoration now, considering that the war is still going on. But we will secure, ensure that institutions do not collapse, restore their functionality, taking into account the sources of funding that we have,” he said.

Oleksandr Tkachenko also commented on the issue of organizing tours of Dnipro theaters in Europe: “First of all, we will ensure that those cities that are close to the front line have the opportunity to go on tour and collaborate with leading Western institutions.”

For reminding, among the participants of the discussions were the representatives of the Dnipropetrovsk Academic Opera and Ballet Theater, the Dnipro Academic Drama and Comedy Theater, the Dmytro Yavornytsky National Historical Museum of Dnipro and other representatives of the sphere of culture, local authorities, people’s deputies of Ukraine from Dnipro.
