Cultural exchanges have a significant role in bringing people from every religious, economic and social background together, so through this project we want to combine both preservation of cultural heritage and work on social integration of people and in particular youngsters and artistic groups within the creative sector who usually get less attention via the media and other networks in their local communities and to develop active citizenship among all groups of people, especially the creative sector.
This YE is focused on fostering development of basic and traversal skills, such as soft skills and multilingualism using innovative methods and two universal languages: Folk Music and Traditional Dance as tools of social inclusion. The overall aim of the project is to make participants aware of their culture and ancient roots through discovering similarities and sharing common problems and opportunities.

Be sure that you do have your health insurance for the period of the project for the emergency needs. Take your personal medicines, thus we will have First Aid Kit and some general medicines in case someone ask for it.
Upon arrival all participants need to have either vaccination certificate, recovery certificate or a Covid19 negative test (PCR) to be able to enter the country, either to pass it here and wait until the results will be ready.
To enter the country with the antigen test or a rapid test is not possible.
Please note, that this is not covered by the project as while applying no one even heard about it. Thus, if you will have budget left from your travels, we will try to include it. The PCR test costs around 25Eur (15000AMD) in Armenia. You can leave Armenia freely, but check the regulations of the country you are entering. Armenia and Georgia have the same status for Covid19.

Before you hop on a plane/bus/camel/private jet/submarine/Santa’s sleigh check the following possibilites:
You should arrive to the venue before 19:00. The arranged bus will pick you up at the Republic Square next to the drinking fountains (latest 18:00 is possible).
Please note that we do not have public transportation connections to that location, so the only way to get there will stay a taxi (around 20EUR).
PLEASE pay attention to the check in time and do not come later than 19:00 since we have a night agenda prepared for you.
You can arrive either to Yerevan, Gyumri or Tbilisi. From Georgia/Gyumri is possible to arrive directly to the venue. Confirm tickets with us before purchasing.
In case you arrive to Yerevan there is a shuttle bus from the airport to Republic Square every hour (the price per person is 300AMD/0.60EUR).
From the Republic Square an arranged bus will take you to the venue and the price will be divided between the participants (around 5 EUR one way).
In case you arrive to Tbilisi or Gyumri we will arrange transportation depending on the number of participants. The price per person one way is around 12000AMD/25EUR.
You are allowed to stay in Armenia 2 days before or after the project, which costs are not covered by the project.
Do not exchange lots of money at the airport. The rate is low there. Do not take airport taxis. For Armenia you can download GG application instead and order one or we will help you.
