Below you can find some highlights of recent cultural policy developments in Armenia:
The national education development programme for 2022-2030 was accepted in October 2022, with a number of institutional, ideological, programmatic and methodological changes planned.
Although the new cultural policy is not officially developed yet, some new approaches pay special attention to students’ cultural rights and opportunities, as well as accessibility of cultural events and institutions.
- The pandemic and the Second Karabakh war of 2020 have seriously affected the cultural sphere and currently it is still in the reanimation process.
Collaboration between art professionals from abroad and local NGOs have become important since the beginning of the Russian-Ukrainian war e.g. a residency programme on issues relating to urban spaces.
