The Rogatchi Foundation is happy to announce our new laureates in year 2020. In this special, challenging year, our Foundation has come with new Culture for Humanity Global Initiative, to help the wide public to cope with challenging times caused by a mass factor, such as pandemics, via arts and culture, to provide psychological support via these special means to as many people as possible world-wide.
As we are working on this wide-reaching initiative from March 2020 onward, some outlines of our activities has been accommodated for the new needs and objectives that we have as our strategic priorities from the time of covid-19 pandemic.
Following these necessary and logical changes in our works, we have also adjusted our annual Award, from previously known as Humanist of the Year Award to Culture for Humanity Award, as we believe that during these very difficult times for every single person worldwide, culture is providing much needed light into our life and daily struggles on so many different fronts and directions.
To be able to produce culture under the circumstances, to be creative, energetic, capable for new creations, people involved in that field, have to have an extra measures of strength, motivation, willingness, aspirations, and humanity to willing to continue to work in demanding sphere of creativity and to share their hearts with many of us.
This year 2020, introducing our first Culture for Humanity Annual Award, we have decided that all our laureates will be given Life Achievement Family Culture for Humanity Award. The Rogatchi Foundation Board has decided to award special people and institutions in which culture for humanity was and is a family business and tradition for generations. Importantly, our laureates are also demonstrated a very serious input into the contribution culture for humanity in several generations of the same family, and are continuing to do so today. We believe that it is noble and special tradition which is worthy to be recognised internationally.
For the first time during the traditional The Rogatchi Foundation Annual Award, among our laureates are institutions. Previously, we recognised an individuals with our Award. This time, the work of the institutions in question under extremely daring realities of covid-19 pandemic, and their contribution into providing much needed cultural anti-dote against long and ongoing psychological stress among wide public, is not only highly professional and focused, but it is also brave and coming out of the strong convictions, both professional and humanitarian ones. This kind of attitude is certainly worthy of special recognition, we believe.
We are happy to congratulate our distinguished laureates. Continue Reading on The Rogatchi Foundation Announcement….
