Irina Driga, First Deputy Minister of Culture of the Republic of Belarus:
Somewhere the attitude to culture is not the same as in the Belarusian capital. But there are so many talented people, from artisans to culture workers, who preserve traditions and sometimes sing, write or paint just as a hobby. We need to find these people and give them a chance to prove their worth.

Belarus will also create the world's only Code of Сulture. It will reflect the volume of state support to art and the planned activities until 2020. The document will be considered at the end of 2016, at the forum of creative intellectuals and employees of cultural institutions.
