In April 2018, the “Kharatian Experiential Center for the Performing Arts, Gyumri” project received an Innovation for Social Impact grant, implemented within the Bridge4CSOs project led by AGBU in partnership with EPF and funded by the European Union for Piloting the Program, to develop Capital Planning, initiate Institutional Marketing and start Capital Campaign Planning.
We envision the Kharatian Experiential Centre for the Performing Arts as an immersive learning center for the arts in which communities can collaborate to explore the creative process together. Visitors may come with friends to watch a simulcast then linger to take pictures of an outdoor art installation. Parents may bring their children to attend an art camp and stop by a dance rehearsal they notice in a bright studio on the way. The Kharatian Experiential Centre for the Performing Arts acts as a creative incubator where artists can realize their visions and visitors from all walks of life will not always need a ticket to experience art.
