Nalbandian Shirak State University Foundation implements the program “Nshkhars from the oral culture of Shirak”. The program provides for the collection of the values of the intangible cultural heritage of the Shirak region. The worship of bread, water, and various manifestations of everyday rituals can be found in different communities of the region, whose inhabitants, migrating from different provinces of Western Armenia, still keep them sacred. The main goal of the program is to contribute to the preservation of intangible cultural heritage, the implementation of cultural communication between generations and the transfer of a system of values.
