The Culture Ministry has managed to agree on allocating nearly €11 million for independent culture.
However, some associations representing independent artists have been critical, claiming that only a small group of artists will benefit from it. Moreover, the planned assistance will not solve the livelihood problems they face due to the coronavirus crisis, they said, as reported by the TASR newswire.
Milanová responded that she was taken back by the response.
