Dec 15, 2010 10:10:43 AM - itnnews.lk

Artistes who dedicated to the welfare of the cultural, literary and arts sectors have been honoured.

The Kalabushana State awards festival was held at the John de Silva Memorial Theatre in Colombo. 210 artistes who displayed their talents in the fields of literature, music, dancing, arts, sculpture and carving were honoured. A notable feature is the presentation of these honorary titles once in the lifetime of an artiste. The awards ceremony was presided by Minister T.B. Ekanayake. Many colourful events were staged. Director of the Cultural Affairs Department Vijitha Kanugala and Chairman of the Arts Council Carlo Fonseka were among those who graced the occasion.
