YEREVAN (Armenpress)—A memorandum of understanding was signed between Tumo Center for Creative Technologies and Koghb Education, Culture and Sports Development Fund on opening a Tumo Center in the northeastern village of Koghb.
Executive Director of Tumo, Marie Lou Papazian, said the center will stand out with its new equipment and modernity.
“This initiative will allow spreading Tumo in smaller communities. The Tumo center of Koghb will involve not only the youth of Koghb, but also from Noyemberyan, Berdavan and nearby villages, who will be able to specialize and get modern skills, as well as work in the future online or on spot,” she said.
According to the schedule, the process will begin in 2018, and is predicted to have at least 600 students.
The Tumo Center for Creative Technologies is a free-of-charge digital media learning center for youth in Yerevan, Armenia.
Since its opening in 2011, the center has provided thousands of students aged 12–18 an open environment where they can use the latest in digital tools, learn from media professionals, and explore the intersection of technology and art.
