Improving quality of public art contest

Khanh Hoa Provincial People's Committee has just issued a plan to organize Khanh Hoa’s 16th Public Art Contest in 2022. The fact that the event is organized as a contest instead of a festival like the previous ones show the organization committee has paid more intention to the quality of the event. In a recent interview with Khanh Hoa Newspaper, Nguyen Tuan Thanh, deputy director of Khanh Hoa Provincial Department of Culture and Sports, said:
 
Khanh Hoa’s 16th Public Art Contest takes place at To Hap Town (Khanh Son District) on July 14 and 15. The contest is expected to help the cultural workforce at grass roots levels to assess and continue to promote the cultural movement and improve the cultural and spiritual life of people in the province. For the amateur art troupes, the event will also be an occasion to exchange and learn performance skills from each other as well as to discover new outstanding faces for the troupes.

The participating art troupes need to carefully prepare their repertoire with diverse content and forms based on the plan approved by the provincial People’s Committee. The contest needs to be organized safely and economically and ensure the art quality.
 
- What are the things that the art troupes need to pay intention to when preparing repertoire for the contest?
 
- The content of the repertoire need to revolve around the subjects about praising the Party, Uncle Ho and love for the nation; struggles of the country and Khanh Hoa Province in the cause of national construction, defense and renewal; learning and following Ho Chi Minh’s thoughts and style; nation’s sovereignty over sea and islands; the faith of Vietnamese people in the leadership of the Party; promoting the creativeness of people in work; and so on. This year, the organization committee also encourages the troupes to incorporate the content relating to the implementation of the Politburo's Resolution 09 dated January 28, 2022 on building and developing Khanh Hoa Province to 2030, with a vision to 2045 into their repertoire.

The repertoire of each art troupe need to include many forms of music such as solos, duets, trios, group singing, solo dance, duet dance, group dance, and performances of musical instruments and folk art, performed in 45 minutes. Districts, towns, cities, armed force units, provincial departments and sectors, universities, colleges, professional intermediate schools, and businesses in the province can form their public art troupe of amateur actors, who are living Khanh Hoa, to take part in the contest.
 
- How will the provincial District Department of Culture and Sports coordinate with Khanh Son District to ensure the success of the festival?
 
- The provincial District Department of Culture and Sports will assume the prime responsibility and coordinate with related agencies and units to implement the plan; carry out propaganda activities and professional content of the plan. Khanh Son District People's Committee will help the department with propaganda activities and prepare the venue and facilities for the contest.
