President Mustafa Akıncı stressed that they need the global power of art in Cyprus more than ever.

At his reception hosted for World Art Day in the garden of the Presidency, Akıncı said that there are global values of the artists on the basis of a free, democratic and bright future which we are trying to establish in Cyprus.

The “World Art Day” reception which was planned to be hosted on 15 April on the birthday of Leonardo Da Vinci was hosted yesterday due to President Akıncı being overseas at an international activity on that date.

In his speech addressing the artists, Akıncı said that artists produce for a better future, criticize for a more democratic community and they create works and opinions.

Furthermore, Akıncı added “We are trying to establish a new culture at the negotiation table, and you as the artists are trying to establish a new culture with your art. We are trying to act with global values, global sensibility and global responsibility.”
