In 2009 Europe commemorated the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Iron Curtain and recalled the events so emotional and dramatic in those days.
Unlike other Eastern bloc countries, Romania had to pay with many lives regaining national dignity, democracy and freedom of opinion.
Since 2007 Romania joined the European Union, but for the first time in 20 years our country has the opportunity to remind the world the events of December and courage that citizens of this country have demonstrated in front of communist repression.
At this point we believe it is time to go back for a moment to the sacrifice of the heroes of that day and turn them into a sacrifice of pride, celebration and acceptance of the past in order to move forward with the head up.
Young people today need to know the past to understand the present and building the future.
Foundation for Pluralism in partnership with the Art Museum of Prahova County -"Ion Ionescu-Quintus" runs the cultural education project "Young musicians in dialogueâ from May to October 2013. The project is funded by The Administration of the National Cultural Fund and aims to meet the cultural needs of local communities, in particular those with limited access to culture, to be in contact with Romanian and universal cultural values.
Six cultural events are organized in the form of chamber recitals, coupled with public lectures supported by well known personalities in the local community. The six events held in Bucharest and Prahova County (Ploiesti, Busteni and Sinaia), and the public access to these events is free.
The project promotes young musicians aged between 14 and 28 years old at the beginning of their career (including onset artistic), and public readings in cultural spaces non-formal, supported by prominent leaders of the communities targeted by the project.
The project leverages the potential of young musicians (students, graduates, masters or PhD) to be involved in increasing public access to culture and personal desire to affirm and express music.
