爱沙尼亚将给作家和美术家发薪水鼓励创作

Ten writers and artists in Estonia are to be paid a salary by the state for the next three years to encourage their work, it's been reported.

据报道,未来三年,爱沙尼亚政府将给十位作家和美术家发薪水来鼓励他们的创作。

The ministry1 of culture in the Baltic state has announced that those selected will each receive a portion of the 160,000 euros which will be set aside each year from 2016, Estonian public broadcaster ERR2 reports. "The state's interest is straightforward3: a poet or painter needs an opportunity to concentrate on his or her creative work," says ministry spokesperson Meelis Kompus. "Without enough support and people working on several fronts to make ends meet, precious creations may never see the light of day or be delayed."

To apply, writers and artists have to submit a portfolio4 of their work, a personal statement, and they must outline their creative goals for the next few years.

State salaries for the arts are rare, and the most that artists can usually hope for is a grant or bursary which gives financial security for a short period. In Ireland, for example, the Arts Council offers up to 15,000 euros as a single-year literary bursary.

That's something Estonia is trying to change, with Culture Minister Indrek Saar saying that the proposed salary offers security that one-off arts grants do not usually provide. Competition for the 10 salaried posts is expected to be "fierce", according to director of Tallinn Art Hall Taaniel Raudsepp. "Our aim is to find people who are at the peak of their creative powers," he says.
