The idea of founding Tsirani Cultural, Youth NGO (Tsirani Cultural Hub since 2014) first appeared in 2007. At the beginning, Narek Ashughatoyan and Dn. Tatul Hambardzumyan (Very Rev. Garegin Hambardzumyan) wanted to publish a culture-related magazine, but afterwards the idea was modified and developed and as a result on January 31, 2008 Tsirani NGO was established.
Since the establishment of Tsirani Cultural Hub the following have been adopted as its objectives:
- To promote the protection of tangible and intangible cultural values, to contribute to their development and to disseminate culture-related information;
- To raise general awareness to cultural issues and values in society;
- To work towards strengthening intercultural ties.
