Armen was born in Gyumri, Armenia in 1988, just 4 months before the massive Spitak earthquake hit. In the dead of winter, it took rescuers 7 hours to find him under piles of stone rubble. With this history, Armen now directs all his efforts at rebuilding his city.
You can hear Armen's story in person! Join us in May 2018 as we focus on conservation of wood doors & windows at the museum, and initiate plans to turn a damaged historic residence into a B&B. Job creation through heritage tourism is the key to the city's future.
This will be an experience of a lifetime. Register now!
Scotland Success - Glasshouse Completely Glazed!
Thanks to 15 incredible AiP jammers, who didn't mind some hard work, the Burgie Edwardian Glasshouse is now completely enclosed with glass. The June team completed all the prep work, and the Sept/Oct team put in around 250 panes of glass in just two weeks. We're now all linseed oil putty and glass cutting experts!.
AiP is looking for sponsors to continue conservation work in 2018. The historic west wing is near collapse and would be a great loss. Contact AiP to support this valuable effort.
