Maarja Oviir-Neivelt and Indrek Neivelt awarded the honorary title Friend of Culture 2015

22.02.2016

We would like to offer our heartfelt congratulations to our long-time partners, Maarja Oviir-Neivelt and Indrek Neivelt, who were awarded the honorary title Friend of Culture 2015.

At the Thank You Event held on 16 February, the Minister of Culture Indrek Saar recognised those companies and private people who supported the field of culture the most in 2015. The three main prizes, Friend of Culture 2015, were awarded to those with an exceptional contribution to the field of culture.

Thanks to help and support from Maarja Oviir-Neivelt and Indrek Neivelt, it was possible to complete the documentary “Arvo Pärt – isegi kui ma kõik kaotan” (“Arvo Pärt – Even if I Lose Everything”) by the director Dorian Supin last autumn, when the composer celebrated his 80th birthday. Maarja Oviir-Neivelt and Indrek Neivelt have been closely involved with the Centre’s activities since the beginning, dedicating their time and varied experience to the benefit of the Centre.

The Ministry of Culture has been awarding the title Friend of Culture since 2012.
