Civil Society Organizations in Armenia support women, feed children, teach adults to be self-reliant, advocate for greater civil and human rights, protect the rights of the poor, empower villagers, foster the arts, build cooperatives, encourage collaboration. In other words, civil society organizations build Armenia's young civil society. Use Civil.am to show your good work, or to support someone else's.
ONEArmenia is calling for anyone in the world over the age of 16 to pitch a project under $10,000 that transforms an element of Armenian culture--be it ancient or contemporary--into a fresh, 21st century creation. There are no rules as to process or form; applicants should just want to shift Armenia's culture out of its traditional and historic space and make it the basis for an active, modern-day aesthetic. The winning project will be chosen by the online community in a single round of open voting via Facebook.
