The Embassy of France in Armenia and the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sports of the Republic of Armenia begin work on the project “Armenia’, research, preservation, and expansion of heritage”, funded by the Solidarity Fund for Innovative Projects of the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs of France. The program expresses France’s commitment to supporting the preservation, restoration, and strengthening of Armenia’s cultural heritage, the French Embassy in Yerevan said in a statement. It is planned to strengthen and develop the skills of specialists in the restoration and preservation of cultural heritage through continuing education courses. It is also planned to restore the Tatev monastery complex, at the first stage of which it is planned to conduct a historical and architectural study of the monument, as well as organize the first volunteer work camp with the Association “Remparti” and “Terre et Culture” (“country and culture”). The third component is devoted to the reorganization and modernization of the permanent exhibition of the Erebuni Museum and is aimed at evaluating collections. It will be carried out jointly with the Louver. Western Armenia highly appreciates the implementation of such programs aimed at preserving cultural values.
