President of Republike of Slovenia Danilo Türk reward artists Svetlana Makarovič, Henrik Neubauer and Dušan Jovanovič for their their exceptional contribution to Slovenian culture.
Yesterday president of Republic Slovenia Danilo Türk rewarded a writer Svetlana Makarovič, dancer and choreographer Henrik Neubauer and theater director Dušan Jovanović for their exceptional contribution to Slovenian culture. Svetlana Makarovič had a great emotional speech about how she never realized that as an artist she is servicing her country. I know I and many people present were stunned by her message. We are used to see pictures of soldiers, fighting for their country and slogans like “serving my country”, but also artists are in the same service as well.
