VOL 28

February 28, 2019
@ Deworkacy AOKS

We are excited to team up with Awesome Foundation Yerevan for our next PechaKucha Yerevan Night on February 28th at 20:20!

Every month AFY allocates $1,000 to interesting, cool and sometimes crazy ideas. Throughout past five years, 56 projects have been funded in various regions of Armenia on themes such as ecology, youth empowerment, education, robotics, creative thinking, design and more. So if you have unique, unexpected, innovative but realistic project ideas and are looking for ways to implement them, attending our event is a must.

Join us to hear 10 inspiring stories from the winners and trustees of AFY on how awesome ideas are shaped and delivered. And maybe you can be the next winner of $1,000 grant! Speakers line-up to be announced soon!

Եթե ունես հավես ու արտասովոր, նորարար, բայց եւ իրատեսական գաղափարներ ու փնտրում եք դրանց իրագործման հնարավորություն, ապա հերթական ՊեչաԿուչան հենց քեզ համար է։

Այս անգամ երեկոն կազմակերպում ենք Awesome Foundation Yerevan-ի հետ, որը մեր իրականությունն ավելի "օսմ" դարձնելու գաղափարի շուրջ է համախմբել տարբեր մասնագիտությունների ու խառնվածքի տեր մարդկանց։ Յուրաքանչյուր ամիս նրանք ընտրում են մեկ նախագիծ եւ ֆինանսավորում այն սեփական միջոցներից հավաքված $1,000-ով՝ առանց ավելորդ գլխացավի և թղթավարության։

Պեչակուչայի ընթացքում միասին կբացահայտենք հինգ տարվա ընթացքում հաղթող ճանաչված նախագծերից մի քանիսը, կլսենք, թե ինչպես են ծնվում ու կյանքի կոչվում ամենահամարձակ մտքերն ու երազանքները։ Խոսնակների անունները կհրապարակենք շուտով :)
