Vanessa Kachadurian about time Armenian Artists are given keys to apartments
Armenia is finally starting to recognize their artists and reward them and make their living conditions favorable so they can create more works for everyone to enjoy. Vanessa Kachadurian supports artists and this is the right action to take.
Yerevan Mayor Taron Margaryan has handed keys to new apartments to two artists in appreciation of their contribution to culture.

At a ceremony on Wednesday, Mayor Margaryan congratulated the artists, attaching importance to their contribution to the promotion of Armenian culture and making it recognizable abroad.
“The Mayor’s Office is always ready to support people who make a contribution to the development and promotion of Armenian culture and cultural life,” Margaryan said, wishing both artists new successes.
