The Bethlen Gábor Foundation of Aiud also received funding in the year 2022 in the framework of the “National Restart Programme II”, a call for proposals launched by the BGA Zrt. on behalf of the State Secretariat for National Policy of the Prime Minister’s Office.
We focused on supporting the cultural programmes and events of the National Restart Programme, using the grant to run the Collegium Gabrielense Renaissance Dance Group and to support the implementation of a cultural event.
Within the framework of the National Restart II, the Bethlen Gábor Foundation received a grant of HUF 500,000. Most of the money was used to pay the fees of the Renaissance dance instructor, as in the second semester of the 2021/22 school year, rehearsals were held almost weekly, resulting in the learning of a choreography, which was presented to the public in the framework of the 400th anniversary celebrations of Bethlen Gábor College.
The other half of the amount was used to pay for the Renaissance activities, also during the anniversary celebrations. Organised by the Order of the Golden Griffin, the Riverenza Group gave an early music concert for the participants. During the concert, the members of the Order of the Golden Griffin performed medieval dances, taking the participants on a journey through time.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the State Secretariat for National Policy of the Prime Minister’s Office for its continued support for our prosperity in our homeland, as the cultivation and development of multifaceted relations contributes to strengthening our sense of Hungarian identity.
