sub-Armenia

People and places: A day of activities filled with discovery, local interactions and emotions.

We will zoom-in into the several subcultures of Armenia starting from civic activism to political imprisonment and fine crafts. The next level is discovering the fashion and style of Armenians as determined by the traders’ philosophy in the clothing bazaar. Attending a live interactive theater with locals in public transport to observe the codes of communication.

Armenia is unique for having a small number of minorities, but it is considered one of the few homes for Yazidis. They open up to us and share their traditions sincerely.

    Tigran Arakelyan is our host, a famous civic activist against the previous regime since 2008. His struggle resulted in a false charge leading to a sentence of 6 years of imprisonment. As there was no proof, he was released after spending only 2,5 years in prison as a political prisoner. We will visit his home, meet his family and share lunch with them.

    Tigran is a famous craftsman now and his works were presented to a wide range of people from the Pope to Putin.
