Repressions in the field of culture - an attempt to tame culture

5 May, 2022

On May 5, the International Society for Fair Elections and Democracy organized a forum entitled “Cultural Repression – An Attempt to Tame Culture.”

After the appointment of Tea Tsulukiani as the Minister of Culture, Sports, and Youth, the reorganization and large-scale changes in the field of culture took the form of staff cleansing, against the background of which more than 70 employees of various sub-departments of the Ministry were fired.

The aim of the forum was to provide space for the representatives of different cultural spheres to talk about censorship and political control in the system.
