The Project is carried out with the support of the programme Support to the Armenia-Turkey Normalisation Process: Stage 2 financed by the European Union.
The project aims to contribute to developing a commercial and cultural dialogue between Turkey and Armenia by bringing together publishers of the two countries.
In this regard, a group of Armenian publishers will be in Istanbul on 21-24 February, 2017, to hold several professional meetings and make visits to publishing houses and bookshops. The Armenian participants will meet Turkish publishers, editors, literary agents and NGO representatives at a closed-door event on 22 February.
Ms. Arpine Aleksanyan and Ms. Sona Baloyan from Yerevan, from “Matenadaran” Mesrop Mashtots Institute of Ancient Manuscripts, were supported with the travel grant to visit Istanbul, Turkey for meetings with the Armenian Patriarchate, Armenian high schools, foundations and publishing houses to discuss possibilities of further collaboration on preserving the Armenian culture.
