Luanda - Three Angolan cultural associations have said they are working towards the constitution of a Confederation of National Artistic Organizations up to this year, with the aim to better defend art and its creators.

The Angolan Writers Union (UEA), National Union of Artists and Composers (UNAC) and National Union of Plastic Artists (UNAP) met on Thursday in Luanda to discuss the steps to be given for the creation of the confederation.

Speaking to Angop on Sunday, António Ana "Etona", secretary-general of UNAP, said that national artists, in general, have several challenges, such as being more valued by the society and to have more possibilities or facilities to obtain financial conditions and others, inherent to the development of their activities.

Etona spoke of the need to create more social awareness about the importance of art and culture in the country, from an early age, adding that this can only be achieved with greater togetherness of the national artistic class.

"The Confederation of National Artistic Organizations is expected to be another valid and strong interlocutor that, together with the government and the society, be able to give its contribution for the improvement of the artistic movement and, consequently, the condition of the artist", Etona said.
