                     Cultural Messages for the 10th World Festival of Traditional Dances 2014

CULTURAL MESSAGE BY THE PRIME MINISTER Mr. ANTONIS SAMARAS
To the
IONES” CULTURAL AND EDUCATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF ELIKI, MUNICIPALITY OF AIGIALEIA


 

Art has always been a means for the enhancement of human sensitivity, creativity, as well as of personal, local and national identities. Dancing, this particular form of art, is a unique educational tool that teaches, among other things, discipline, coordination, harmony and aesthetic refinement. Learning folk dance -and, generally, engaging with national traditions- provides youngsters the opportunity to participate to the national soul and become a link in a chain that should not break. Respecting one’s own traditions may contribute to respect for traditions of other nations as well provided, of course, that they do not violate fundamental human rights. For freedom requires respect for these rights. And dance can contribute to reconciliation among nations, as it is an art that unites and liberates.

 

The “Iones” Association, which this year celebrates 10 years of the World Festival of Folk Dances, offers a brilliant work that makes us all proud. We thank them for that.

 

 

 

The Prime Minister

 

Antonis C. Samaras

 

To the Cultural and Educational Association on Municipality of Eliki “Iones”

 

The World Festival of Traditional Dances has been present for the last 10 years in the cultural life of our country. It is a very important institution that helps to promote culture and tradition. Meanwhile, through its openness, the Festival reinforces dialectic relationships, emphasizes artistic creation, educates, entertains and keeps the tradition of our country alive. This year, however, the Festival acquires special significance because of the difficult situation in which it is conducted. At a time when Greece is tested in many levels, the World of Culture shows in the most meaningful way that the forces that will get us out of the crisis are alive. The harmonious and creative coexistence of the new with the old, the modern with the traditional, the familiar with the unknown, makes the World Festival of Traditional Dances more topical than ever. I want to congratulate all those involved in the Festival and to wish them good luck in this year’s organization.

 

Angela Gkerekou

 

Deputy Minister of Culture and Sport

 

 

Dear friends,

Traditional dances serve the refinement of the spirit and harmony, while converting all of us to followers of our historical identity. The history of Greece throughout the centuries is long, with unique cultural and historical features that emerge through the preservation and continuation of our traditions and customs. Our guests deserve to get to know these characteristics and Folk Dance Festival organized by the Cultural Association Iones contributes significantly to the touristic and cultural promotion of our country. The organization, which after ten years is firmly established, is a benchmark for the preservation and dissemination of the tradition of our country. Events that promote culture and highlight tradition, have and always will have our full support.

                                                                                                  President of E.O.T.

                                                                          Dr. Christos L. Pallis

 

Message of the Ambassador of Ukraine to the Hellenic Republic

Folk dance expresses the soul of those who created it. It is a very important cultural element, which reflects both history and current events, tradition and improvisation, art and practice. While dancing, movements tell a wordless story and that’s why dance language does not need a translation. It actually acts as a bridge, bringing people of different cultural backgrounds closer to each other. My country –Ukraine- is very large and is located in the centre of Europe. It holds ancient civilization, rich and fruitful earth, welcoming, hard working, talented people with a great love for their homeland. All these cultural elements of our people are gathered with care and love and represented by the dance group “Zorianoi” (in Ukrainian this word means “stars”) of the Philharmonic of Kirovogkrat city. The group was created in 1984, and its artistic “beliefs” consist of three components: music, singing and dancing. I am convinced that “Zorianoi” will represent Ukraine in the anniversary of the 10th World Festival of Traditional Dances in Aegio in the best way. Seizing this opportunity, I would like to congratulate the organizers of the Festival – Cultural and Educational Association of Municipality of Eliki Iones and the chairman, mr. Asimakis Stavropoulos for organizing this Festival, which has become a major international cultural event. I would also like to express my gratitude for this so important to us all cultural cooperation, that strengthens the friendship between our people.

 

    Mr. Volodymyr Shkourov

 

Message of the Ambassador of Chile to the Hellenic Republic for the 10th World Festival of Traditional Dances

Through this message, I would like to congratulate the Cultural and Educational Association Eliki «Iones» and particularly it’s President, Mr. Asimakis Stavropoulos,   for the important cultural work they have been performing    so philanthropically and idealistically in the region of Achaeia for several years in the field of Traditional Dances. Culture is today, more than ever, a most important mean   to achieve  a meaningful life,  a human life, especially in a world in which only numbers, statistics, fast profit  and business seem to  take the first place of preoccupations and priorities. I believe a deeper consciousness of these elements should be developed, since without culture and cultural dialogue  we will never attain a fully sustainable system of life, in which the  respect for the environment, both natural and human and  including the concept of civilization, should be  considered  as the main reference of life and all our endeavors. In this regard,  I believe that the World Festival of Traditional Dances of Aigeio - so efficiently supported by the Cultural and Educational Association Eliki «Iones»  not only  greatly contributes to the goal of promoting  cultural dialogue – a notion that UNESCO has stressed as a very important mean to improve our lives and promote  international understanding -  but also  stresses  the relevance of the basic  right to have  beauty  in  our daily life. Beauty, as the former   Minister of Culture of France, Mr. Jack Lang, has said “should be considered as a fundamental right for humanity”. I sincerely think this wonderful Festival has significantly contributed for the achievement of that goal. My, country, Chile, located in the southern tip of South America is a country of amazing geographical and cultural contrasts. The driest desert on earth , Atacama, in the northern part of the country; the Andes Cordillera with heights well above 6000 meters;  active volcanoes;  earthquakes; cold sea currents coming from the South Pole;  cold jungles and the widest ocean on earth, the Pacific. All these elements were represented in this Festival last year version by the Chilean dance Group ANTUMAPU, one of the best in Chile for traditional dances. We sincerely hope to be able to bring another dance group of this level to the 2015 version of the Festival and show to our Greek friends our cultural values  which are very surprising  , but  in the same way,   similar to Greek  and therefore human, in the widest meaning of the concept. We thank The Cultural and Educational Association Eliki «Iones» for the participation of the Chilean ANTUMAPU Dance Group in this Festival last year and hope to bring another one of the same level in 2015. Last but not least – once more our warmest congratulations to the President of Eliki «Ιones» for the important philanthropic work they are performing in order to enrich cultural exchanges and promote beauty and human values, which are elements that cannot be measured with just numbers.

Message of the Ambassador of the Republic of Indonesia to the Hellenic Republic on the occasion of the 10th World Festival of Traditional Folkloric Dances, Aegialeia, Greece

On behalf of the People and the Government of the Republic of Indonesia, I would like to convey our highest appreciation to the Cultural and Educational Association ELIKIS IONES, who have organized the 10th World Festival of Traditional Folkloric Dances. Indonesia is proud to present LISTRA Sundanese cultural group to this festival. Indonesia is culturally rich country, with a civilization that can be traced back over many centuries. Indonesia has more than 300 ethnic communities, which make up the key factors in producing the rich cultural heritage of the Indonesian people today. Indonesians are proud of their diversity, integrating it in our lives day by day for generations. We have inherited an immense variety of traditions as well as innovations in the past, while continuing to create new ones in the present. Among this diversity, Sundanese culture is the second largest ethnic group of Indonesia, which outnumbers in West Java. The Sundanese folkdance introduced to the Greek people the elegance of artistic expression, entertainment and social conduct among the Sundanese people of West Java.
Through this festival, I hope that the Greek people had the opportunity to get to know more about the diversity of Indonesian culture. We are convinced that this festival will greatly contribute for enhancing mutual understanding and further strengthening of Indonesian and Greek friendship relation.

Message Of the Prime Minister Mr. Antonis C. Samaras

 

     To

 

Cultural & Educational Association of Eliki of Municipality Aigialeia “Iones”

 

 

 

Dancing is a unique pedagogical instrument. It teaches discipline, coordination, harmony, aesthetics and refinement.

 

Learning folk dances turns young people to active participants in their cultural tradition.

 

Whoever knows and understands all about his cultural identity can learn to respect the different cultural identities of his neighbors.

 

It provides a sense of responsibility to keep and to continue what was shaped through centuries and stayed alive.

 

Dancing symbolizes the most crucial link of an unbreakable chain. This unity is based on mutual respect, on the rhythm and the same tune.

 

The cultural Society "Iones" which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year is doing a superb job, which we are all proud of and we are very thankful to them.
