GLENDALE —The Armenian American Museum has released dates for upcoming community forums which will feature presentations on the Armenian American Museum, provide an update on the progress of the project, and offer opportunities for community members to engage in a Q&A session and provide feedback.

The events will include private presentations to Glendale-based service organizations in addition to public forums. Residents are encouraged to attend the following meetings:

“We look forward to sharing the vision of the Armenian American Museum and engaging in an active dialogue with our community members” stated Outreach Director, Tigranna Zakaryan. “Our approach is to engage the community through diverse outreach initiatives extended toward service-oriented organizations, faith-based groups, neighboring homeowner groups and residents, and City institutions.”

The Armenian American Museum’s community forum series follows its recent unveiling of the Museum concept design to the Glendale City Council in December 2015. Although the proposal establishing an Armenian American Museum in Glendale has been met with positive and constructive support, a number of residents from the neighborhoods next to the proposed site have expressed objections to building the Museum at the proposed site.

Residents interested in hosting a presentation may further inquire by calling (844) 586-4626 or emailing Info@ArmenianAmericanMuseum.org.

The Armenian American Museum is a developing project in Glendale, CA, with a mission to promote understanding and appreciation of America’s ethnic and cultural diversity by sharing the Armenian American experience. When completed, it will serve as a cultural campus that enriches the community, educates the public on the Armenian American story, and empowers individuals to embrace cultural diversity and speak out against prejudice.

The governing board of the Armenian American Museum consists of representatives from the following nine regional Armenian American institutions and organizations: Armenian Catholic Eparchy, Armenian Cultural Foundation, Armenian Evangelical Union of North America, Armenian General Benevolent Union – Western District, Armenian Relief Society – Western USA, Nor Or Charitable Foundation, Nor Serount Cultural Association, Western Diocese of the Armenian Church of North America, and Western Prelacy of the Armenian Apostolic Church.
