Art & Culture


Earlier, we reported that the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Uzbekistan intends to allocate housing subsidies to individuals in the culture and art sphere who have been effectively contributing to the field of art for many years, including talented young artists.

Following this announcement, social media users expressed their displeasure, claiming that artists earn additional income from weddings and birthday parties, and thus do not need subsidies. In response to these reports, the Ministry of Culture issued a statement.

According to Article 3 of the Law of the Republic of Uzbekistan "On Cultural Activities and Cultural Organizations," a natural person engaged in professional activities in cultural organizations is considered a cultural worker, engaging in one or more types of cultural activities on a professional or non-professional basis (amateurism). The law specifies that a natural person involved in creative activities is referred to as a creator.

Material support for individuals in the culture and art sphere, creators, professors, teachers, and other employees in this field, as well as the improvement of their living conditions, is defined in the 76th goal of the "Development Strategy of New Uzbekistan for 2022-2026."

Simultaneously, paragraph 11 of the decision made by the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan on February 2, 2022, and endorsed by the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Karakalpakstan, regional, and Tashkent city governments, states that culture and art representatives, who have been actively operating in this field for many years, along with talented young artists, will receive a subsidy amounting to 50% of the value of the housing purchased through a mortgage loan. However, this subsidy will not exceed 50% of the calculated value of the housing determined in accordance with the Decree of the President dated December 9, 2021.

It is highlighted that currently, more than 36 thousand employees work in the field of culture and art. Among them, over 850 work in the higher education system, 2,500 in the secondary and secondary special education system, over 12,000 as teachers in children's music and art schools, more than 9,000 as coaches in cultural centers, and more than 2,900 as artists and creators in the field of theater and circus.

According to the ministry, a significant number of representatives of culture and art, who achieve high rankings in international pageants and festivals, contributing to the recognition of Uzbekistan's name and the advancement of culture and art, have been residing in hostels and rented houses for many years.

Contrary to claims on internet sites and social networks, the ministry asserts that not all representatives of culture and art have equal opportunities to provide services at weddings, birthdays, and other events to earn additional income. The ministry emphasizes that, based on its observations on websites, social network pages, official publications, and the portal for the discussion of regulatory legal acts, representatives of the culture and art sphere have not committed offenses such as degrading honor and dignity or spreading false and embarrassing fabrications. In light of this, the ministry encourages reasonable suggestions and comments regarding legislative documents.
