Led by international opera star Hasmik Papian, our Artistic Director, Zartonk Academy is a program of the Atken

Armenian Foundation. It will collaborate with the Government of the Republic of Artsakh as well as international

and local artists and partners, including music schools, cultural centers and creative labs.

A summer music academy modelled on proven state-of-the-art music training mechanisms. The Academy will

consist of Folk, Chamber, Voice, Jazz, and Creative Writing masterclasses as well as a Junior Music Academy led

by international and local artists. Zartonk in Artsakh will include collaborations and live performances, creative

programs with local partners, scholarships for participants and much more.

WHEN?

July 18-31, 2022.

WHY?

HOW?

With the war, pandemic and political unrest in the region for the past few years, the grief-stricken people of

Artsakh are in need of uplifting and enriching programs. This is especially true for its young, trauma-inflicted

population who need positive and practical ways to be inspired for their future. Music can strengthen community,

form identity, and build bridges; it is also a healing force that can help build resilience. This program will bring

real change—an Awakening or Զարթոնք—not only for the youth and people in arts and education, but also to

Artsakh’s public at large living in this post-war climate.

Fully funded through fundraising efforts of the Atken Armenian Foundation and its partners. Room and board will

be provided to faculty and students for the duration of the academy. Local authorities will help provide locales,

concert halls, and PR efforts to publicize the masterclasses and concerts to encourage local participation.

We continue to monitor the situation in the region and have a plan 'B' to hold Zartonk in Gyumri. Zartonk is happening, no
