Speech goes to… Zdeněk Novák
On Tuesday, 13/10/2015, on the grounds of the endowment fund BOHEMIAN HERITAGE FUND, a discussion was held with the State secretary Zdeněk Novák. The discussion panel is a continuation of new discussion format series “Speech goes to…” created by the Fund, which debuted with Silvia Hroncová, the director of National Theater and State Opera earlier this year.
The aim of these panels is to establish a stable platform, where our patrons and friends of the Endowment fund can discuss the topics of the present as well as general ideas with the figures of cultural life.
The plans regarding ways that encourage patronship and general support of culture were the main topics of the debate. The possibilities of restructuring state, regional and local municipalities financing were also discussed.
Ing. Zdeněk Novák praised the effort of the Fund, which opens up brand new possibilities: “We don’t have too many examples to follow, that is why I welcomed the founding of BOHEMIAN HERITAGE FUND in 2009, which slowly but surely became the model for everyone else. Later on he thanked the patrons and artists. JUDr. Pavel Smutný, the President of BHF, added: “The Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic is now far more confident”.
