Language and culture are inexorably linked. In addition to programming that is explicitly focussed on language, the Armenian Communities Department also supports initiatives that are meant to augment cultural production in Western Armenian. The Department’s approach to culture goes far beyond the preservation of the old and the classic. Rather, it focuses on creativity, innovation and the transformative power of culture in the 21st century. If diasporan communities are to be sustainable in the long run, the younger generation needs to create its own culture in its own language, especially in the Diaspora.
The following four key concepts will guide the selection of new projects to be supported through the Cultural Creativity pillar:
A wide range of media will be considered, including the arts, inter-and-multi-disciplinary and hybrid forms of expressions, literature, essays and other critical works, graphic works, new music, videos, installations, animations, all forms of creative broadcasting, and any other form of cultural expression, particularly in Western Armenian.
