Armenian Cause 2.0: Looking forward to seeing you in DC!

Armenian Cause 2.0: Looking forward to seeing you in DC!

About five years ago, I got an e-mail about a conference the Armenian National Committee of America was organizing in Washington DC. It was a 3-day event open to everyone, regardless of what part of the Armenian community one originated from or currently belonged to, in which a series of distinguished speakers and workshops were organized, along with trips to the Armenian Embassy and the Capitol to meet with members of Congress. It was an opportunity to get an up-close look at the advocacy work of the ANCA . Although married with a 2 year old, my wife and I made the childcare arrangements, and booked the trip to DC not knowing exactly what to expect.

A Call to the Armenian Relief Society

A Call to the Armenian Relief Society

Zaruhi has been laid to rest, but her death has raised fundamental questions concerning human rights and gender equality of women in Armenia. It is a poor response by those who claim women are treated no differently in Armenia compared to other countries. How can we justify our probable shortcomings by citing similar shortcomings common to other countries? Doing so would set a very low standard by which to evaluate the value system and future goals of Armenia.

Critics Forum: The Year That Was (Not)

Critics Forum: The Year That Was (Not)

Hard to believe, but for the first nine months of the past year, Armenian theater in Southern California practically did not exist. It seemed as if all its key producers – aside from the Ardavazt Theater Company, which revived a pair of one-acts – had decided to stage … their own disappearance. Indeed, finding an Armenian play proved about as likely as encountering a unicorn.
