Warehouse was invited to join a multidisciplinar team coordinated by Raizvanguarda, a cultural association based in Góis that planned a visit to Armenia with experts from several artistic fields searching for ways to enhance cultural exchange, leisure and education with the youth around three villages.
A equipa viajou com o intuito de conhecer a comunidade local de Tatev, Svarants e Tandzatap e deste modo trocar impressões e alinhar vontades no âmbito de promover trocas culturais, fomentar o lazer e a educação, especialmente no faixa etária dos jovens das três aldeias que formam a região Syunik.
With funding and resources it is possible to implement a participatory building process which will lead to the renovation of spaces and give conditions to develop activities for the community to gather, have fun and at the same time, a place for education, spiritual bond and development of new skills.
