September 30, 2020 | by Creative Armenia
Artists for Artsakh is a creative fund for filmmakers, photographers, writers, and artists who are creating works that bring attention to Artsakh and its people. Whether on the ground in Artsakh or working beyond its borders to capture the truth and raise awareness, artists can apply for #ArtistsForArtsakh grants to support their projects.
"It is through films, photographs, literature, music, and art that the world will understand what is happening in Artsakh," said Garin Hovannisian, founding director of Creative Armenia. "So it is essential that we support creators across all fields, as they bring to life a living chronicle of a people and a place under attack."
Grammy-winning musician and activist Serj Tankian expressed appreciation for artists who are recording "the sights, sounds, smells, and feelings of the things occurring and share them with the world so no one is alone out there on the front lines." The Creative Armenia founding member and advisor added: "The artist's responsibility is to always be truthful to his muse, oneself, and the universe at large."
