Building Documentation in the Kumayri Cultural Museum-Preserve

Adventures in Preservation (AiP) volunteers are currently working alongside Gyumri Project Hope teams – students and professionals from across Armenia – and are sending back reports of their amazing experience. We are pleased to again offer you the opportunity to join this project run by the Kumayri Museum-Preserve with session dates to fit everyone’s schedule - a series of five one-week sessions beginning May 21, 2017; followed by optional 4-day tour.

May 21-28, 2017
June 18-25, 2017
July 16-23, 2017
August 13-20, 2017
September 17-24,2017

Work in 2017 will focus on two areas – documentation within Kumayri Cultural Museum-Preserve and creation of informational packets on individual buildings for distribution to potential investors. Once new investors become involved, new jobs will follow, addressing Gyumri’s greatest need. The city of Gyumri has one of the highest unemployment rates in Armenia and desperately needs the jobs restoration and heritage tourism will bring. Read more and register at
