In May 80 years ago, in the hot land of Yan'an, the flower of the people's literature and art bloomed one after another.

  "Our literature and art are for the masses, first and foremost for the workers, peasants and soldiers."

  In May 1942, Comrade Mao Zedong presided over the Yan'an Symposium on Literature and Art, clearly pointing out that literature and art should serve the broadest masses of the people.

  The Yan'an Literature and Art Symposium calibrated the creative direction of revolutionary literature and art, stimulated the creative enthusiasm of literature and art workers, and opened a new era of people's literature and art.

  Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, my country's literary and artistic undertakings have shown a booming scene of prosperity and development.

  "The people are the source and living water of literary and artistic creation."

On October 15, 2014, General Secretary Xi Jinping quoted Comrade Mao Zedong at the symposium on literature and art work and pointed out that in order to reflect the voice of the people, literature and art must adhere to the fundamental direction of serving the people and socialism.

  "Art for the people", this concept is in the same line, is the echo of history, and is also the proposition of the times.

  On February 4, 1943, the 30th day of the Lunar New Year, the first New Year's Eve after the Yan'an Symposium on Literature and Art.

  In the square outside the south gate of Yan'an, dozens of literary and art groups competed to perform, creating a happy atmosphere.

The 150-member "Lu Yi Yangko Team" of Lu Xun Academy of Arts performed "Yangko Supporting the Army" and other programs that caused a sensation.

  These programs use popular folk forms such as "kick the field", "push a trolley", "run a dry boat" and "cross flower baskets", highlighting the theme of supporting the army and the family and mass production, which is refreshing.

  The folks in Yan'an watched Lu Yi's new Yangko, and said with a thumbs up: "Lu Yi's family." This is a very cordial expression, just like "Old Zhang's family" and "Old Li's family".

Zhou Yang, the dean of Lu Yi, said happily: "Lu Yi's family... what an intimate address!"

  People's needs for spiritual and cultural life exist all the time.

  At the symposium on literature and art held in 2014, General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out, "Material needs are the first, and food is the most important, so it is said that 'the people take food as the sky'. However, this does not mean that the people The needs of spiritual and cultural life are dispensable.”

  Taking the people as the center means to take meeting the spiritual and cultural needs of the people as the starting point and end point of literature and art work, and to serve the people as the duty of literature and art workers.

  In November 2017, General Secretary Xi Jinping wrote affectionately in his reply letter to the Ulan Muqi team members of the Sunite Right Banner, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region: "The long-term prosperity of Wulan Muqi shows that the people need art, and art also needs the people. ."

△The TV series "The World" depicts the life of ordinary people.

  There are a hundred or a thousand ways to create literature and art, but the most fundamental way is to take root in the people.

  Writer Lu Yao threw himself on the vast land and deeply felt what the people were thinking in the process of reform and opening up.

His novel "Ordinary World" has sold more than 20 million copies and has become an inspirational classic.

General Secretary Xi Jinping has repeatedly affirmed and praised Lu Yao and his works, and encouraged the majority of literary and art workers to go into the depths of practice, observe people's lives, and express their aspirations.

  In recent years, "going deep into life and taking root in the people" has become the daily creation of literary and art workers.

This detail triggered Many netizens resonated: "I followed the same drama as the general secretary!"

  Only when the spotlight of creation is aimed at the tens of millions of people can the tree of literature and art remain evergreen.

They persevere and pay without complaint, and write extraordinary chapters of life in ordinary positions.

I saw Wang Jicai's perseverance and my own shadow in the film. We are like this. I am very moved that ordinary people can be recorded by movies and remembered by the times."

  "If literary and art workers want to be successful, they must consciously share the same breath with the people, share their destiny, and be heart-to-heart, rejoice in the joy of the people, worry about the people's troubles, and be the children and cattle of the people. This is the only correct way, and it is also a writer. The greatest happiness of an artist."

  The hundred gardens of literature and art will always bloom for the people.

  General Secretary Xi Jinping quoted Comrade Mao Zedong as saying, "To look at the victory of the Chinese people's democratic revolution after a few decades will make people feel that it is just a short prelude to a long drama. The drama must start from the prelude. Yes, but the prologue isn't the climax yet."

  Adhere to literature and art for the people, the majority of literature and art workers will create more outstanding works worthy of the times, worthy of the people, and worthy of the nation.
