According to the strategic priorities for 2016 published by the Government on Friday, the Ministry of Culture’s top concern is getting the necessary funding. The ministry intends to start the procedures for building a concert hall with 2,000 to 2,400 places in Bucharest, to restore and modernize the National Museum of Romanian History, and to submit to the Government the draft of a new law of cinematography.
On the ministry’s restoration and modernization list are also the Lucian Blaga National Theatre of Cluj-Napoca, the Palace of Culture in Iasi, the Romanian Peasant Museum, the George Enescu National Museum hosted by the Cantacuzino Palace in Bucharest, the Capital’s Kalinderu Museum and the Omnia French Library in Craiova.
Management project contests are planned for hiring managers of subordinate cultural institutions.
The National Centre of Cinematography will be reorganized to increase its efficiency.
A whole new legal framework is necessary to save and consolidate heritage buildings at high earthquake risk, many of whom host cultural institutions.
For improving its financial resources, the ministry wants to set priorities, select projects for financing sessions from the budget, and streamline the financing through the Administration of the National Cultural Fund, while also making it more diverse.
