The Minister of Culture, Sports and Youth Affairs of Georgia, Tea Tsulukiani met with the heads of three art institutes – Shota Rustaveli Theater and Film State University of Georgia, Tbilisi State Academy of Arts, and Tbilisi State Conservatory. They discussed the reforms that need to be taken in the field of art education.
It was noted at the meeting that art schools should produce staff that is needed in the relevant fields. Among them, professions for which there are no curricula in higher art schools at this stage should be restored, although there is a shortage of these professions in the country. They agreed at the meeting that higher education institutions should make calculations in this direction and the heads of those art schools should submit their vision to the Ministry on how they intend to carry out reforms in their field.
“It is important to invest more (both financial and human resources) in each student and not to focus on quantity, but on quality so that the graduates of these institutions know that they will be employed and freely pursue their careers in this field,” said Tea Tsulukiani.
