The status of the artist

The speakers will be Gabriele Rosana (Director for Cultural Policies of Culture Action Europe, Brussels), Carmen Croitoru (Director General of the National Institute for Cultural Research and Training and Associate Professor, PhD of the National University of Theater Arts). and Cinematography in Bucharest), Andrei Chistol (Secretary of State in the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Moldova), Dorin Vaculovschi (Doctor of Economic Sciences, professor, expert at the Institute for Development and Social Initiatives “Viitorul”, Chisinau), Corina Andrei (Sociologist , Doctor of Political Science, Expert in educational and social projects).


In 1980, the UNESCO General Conference adopted a recommendation on the status of the artist. UNESCO called on the Member States to improve the professional, social and economic status of artists by implementing policies and measures related to training, social security, employment, income and tax conditions, mobility and freedom of expression. At that time, the need to understand and strengthen the role of the “creative worker”, as well as the need to improve this status, were already recognized by the Member States. Decades later, the recommendation remains just as relevant. 


Taking into account national legislation, administrative specificities and the particular conditions in which artists and cultural workers work, some European countries have managed to create their own system, which supports and protects people working in the artistic field. Others, including Romania and Moldova, are still on this challenging road. About the challenges, but also about the possibilities to overcome them, about models of good practices and about the importance of each new step forward, the guests of the conference dedicated to the artist’s status discuss.

Art as engine for social inclusion

The speakers of the public talk on the theme art as engine for social envolvement are: Joachim Umlauf (director of the Goethe-Institut in Bucharest), Mihaela Michailov and Radu Apostol (founders of the Replica Educational Theater Center, Bucharest) and Hans Knoll (director of the Knoll Gallery in Vienna and Budapest).  The meeting is moderated by journalist Vadim Cheptănaru.

The meeting is moderated by Liliana Jitari, a lecturer at the Technical University of Moldova in Chisinau.


The discussion about cultural heritage is an overview of how, through various cultural or rescue interventions, heritage – both intangible and material – is protected and valued. Guests present case studies in which heritage becomes the focal point of an artistic program, a comprehensive reconstruction and education project or a reason to bring people together in a desire to help and save, giving new life to traditions, buildings and even data digital. From the challenges of the SUCHO volunteer project, to the results of the twinning of Piscu and Țigănești localities, to the way music signals the precarious condition of the local heritage (MoldoCrescendo), to the importance of the ICOMOS project, which largely involves the community. together with external partners, in order to capitalize on the existing heritage resources, all the projects presented highlight the importance of partnerships and all are connected or are carried out even in the Republic of Moldova.
