Lunes 20 de Mayo de 2024

 Merida, Yucatan, May 20, 2021. Today, the general director of Cultur, Mauricio Díaz Montalvo, as every year, awarded 41 economic incentives to an equal number of workers who work in the department, for having completed 30, 25, 20, 15, and 10 years of uninterrupted service.

The support consisted, in most cases, of giving $1,000 for each year of service to the beneficiaries. For 30 and 25 years there were 3 each, for 20 there were 8, for 15 there were 17, and for 10 there were 10 collaborators.

During the delivery of these resources, which took place at the Dzibilchaltún Hall of the Siglo XXI Convention Center, Mauricio Díaz took the opportunity to thank all the personnel under his charge for the effort made throughout this six-year term.

-Everything that was achieved, such as the Guinness Record (The Largest Lesson on Disability Awareness), having a cinema with inclusive facilities, the highest influx in tourism, the great influx we have here at Siglo XXI... We owe it all to your great effort -he emphasized.

He said that this administration, which will soon end, was very demanding because that's what the governor marked but thanks to this is that the results in all areas are very flattering and it makes us feel very proud to have been part of this chapter in the history of our State.

After the delivery of all economic support, Díaz Montalvo and all his area directors posed for a memorable photo with the workers."

Thousands of cigarette butts have gone from being highly polluting waste to works of art

Thanks to the "colillatones" organized by Cultur in its service units
Martes 23 de Abril de 2024

 In Mérida, Yucatán, on April 23, 2024, Cultur received two new works of art made from cigarette butts collected at the "El Corchito" stopover and the Meteorite Museum, both spaces located in Progreso and managed by this department.

As reported, on December 20, 2023, the general director of Cultur delivered 5,2575 cigarette butts to architect Miranda Jacqueline Escalante Moguel to transform them into two works of art, specifically into paintings that are now a reality.

With these two new artistic pieces, Cultur now has four thanks to an equal number of "colillatones" held not only at the aforementioned locations but also at the Yucatán Siglo XXI Convention and Exhibition Center - including its cinemas - and at the Chichén Itzá stopover.

In all cases, at each of the aforementioned sites, the department has already obtained the respective recognitions as "100% Smoke-Free and Emission-Free Spaces."

Mauricio Díaz Montalvo, general director of Cultur expressed his gratitude for Miranda's very professional work, as her artwork serves as an iconic record of the effort made by Cultur's staff as a contribution to decontaminating the mentioned service units from cigarette butts. He also thanked the Yucatán Health Services (SSY) for granting Cultur the mentioned recognitions.

As reported, Cultur initiated actions to obtain recognition as "100% Smoke-Free and Emission-Free Spaces" in several of the spaces it manages. The first was in May 2022 at the Yucatán Siglo XXI Convention Center, collecting 12,9000 butts. The second was in September of that same year at the Chichén Itzá stopover with 5,125 residues. The third was in August 2023 at the Meteorite Museum and the fourth in early November 2023 with 1,525 waste. In total, Cultur collected 23,300 cigarette butts, most of which are now works of art.
