12.10.2016

As the result of over six-month courses, an exhibition of the works of 14 women and girls who live in the communities of Tatev was held at “Tatev” school on October 11.

The courses of handmade, doll-making and other branches of national art were launched in February 2016 and implemented in several stages, including theoretical and practical trainings conducted by professionals.

The representatives of the World Bank, the UN, the Izmirlian Foundation and other partner organizations attended the exhibition.

It is envisioned that a larger program will stem out of this project implemented with support of Tatev Revival Project and within its framework. Particularly, there is a discussion about establishment of “The Arts House” in Tatev with support of the partners.

According to the project discussed, exhibits of art and craft will be represented at “The Art House”, and in the case of an expansion of the production, the inhabitants of the community will have opportunity to sell their works to tourists.
