Key objectives of the measure:
The pilot programme for introduction of the “Cultural Organisation-School” permanent ticket system was launched in 2015. It is envisaged to be implemented for 2 700 pupils studying in the middle classes of 49 basic schools of 47 bordering communities of the Syunik, Tavush, Ararat, Vayots Dzor and Gegharkunik Marzes of the Republic of Armenia. The programme ensures the participation of children in three events, including one performance, one concert and one visit to a museum in Yerevan. The “Travelling Exhibition” Programme is aimed at introducing culture to residents of remote settlements and ensuring accessibility of cultural services for them. Nineteen events have been organised in 6 marzes of Armenia, including Syunik (city of Sisian, city of Kapan, city of Meghri, city of Goris), Vayots Dzor (city of Yeghegnadzor, city of Jermuk), Tavush (city of Dilijan, Tsaghkavan village, city of Ijevan city), Shirak (city of Ashotsk city), Gegharkunik (city of Sevan, city of Vardenis, Karmir village, city of Gavar, city of Martuni, Shorja village), Lori (Karkop village, city of Tashir, city of Stepanavan). Within the scope of the “Cinema Autumn-2015: National Cinema Month” Programme, old and new Armenian feature films, documentaries, animated films are shown, and the releases of “Gzhuk” children’s satirical film journals are issued in the marzes of Armenia throughout the month.
