On 8 December, an Arts and Crafts Centre was opened as part of the “Dilijan and Adjacent Communities Development Initiative” project. It will enable artisans and craftsmen from Dilijan and adjacent communities can take advantage of the opportunities the centre opens to create interesting items and souvenirs. The Arts and Crafts Centre is equipped with furniture and equipment, with the space for twelve people at a time. Besides providing necessary work space for artisans and craftsmen, specialists working in the centre can present and sell their products at the Dilijan Tourist Information Centre, which opened this summer in the framework of the same project.
EU Ambassador Piotr Świtalski spoke of the support for the project and its implementers: “This centre can help communities enjoy better lives, restore traditions, and promote Dilijan as a brand. It complements the picture alongside other activities made through the “Dilijan and Adjacent Communities Development Initiative”. You have wonderful taste and you can bring about change everywhere. People make this project successful and I want to thank you all. I hope you will be successful and Dilijan’s brand will be famous not only in Yerevan”.
