Creative Armenia and the Armenian General Benevolent Union (AGBU) are now accepting applications for the 2021 Creative Armenia-AGBU Fellowships. Open to filmmakers, musicians, writers, and artists across all creative fields, the Fellowships are a package of funding, mentorship, promotion, and strategic support. Applications will be accepted until October 31.

“In times of crisis, visionary thinking becomes impossible to ignore,“ said Alec Mouhibian, Vice President of Creative Armenia. “The next class of Creative Armenia-AGBU Fellows will have a singular opportunity to shape Armenia’s artistic landscape for years to come."  

The current 2020 Fellows are: composer and musician Armen Bazarian, visual artist and curator Nvard Yerkanian, theatre director and dancer Tsolak Mlke-Galstyan, composer and conductor Alexandr Iradyan, composer and pianist Zela Margossian, and filmmaker Vahagn Khachatryan. 

Now in its third term, the Fellowships are a collaboration of Creative Armenia and AGBU, which entered into a strategic partnership in May 2018.
