On July 12, the EU Delegation to Armenia launched the ‘KATAPULT Creative Accelerator Programme’ to connect local artists with potential investors.
This EU-funded project will be implemented in the framework of the ‘Catalysing creative industries development in Armenia’ programme by AGBU Fund Armenia and the ‘Creative Armenia’ Cultural Foundation.
On this occasion, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport, Ministry of High-Tech Industry, Ministry of Economy, AGBU and the Delegation of the European Union to Armenia.
“Creativity needs a legal framework, reliable partners, solid networks, innovative actors, specific and alternative financing and a constant, collaborative and participatory dynamic. This is what this project is all about: creating an environment and the best conditions for creativity, a source of wealth and livelihood,” said the Head of Cooperation of the EU Delegation to Armenia, Frank Hess.
