PanARMENIAN.Net - The Simonian Educational Foundation has partnered with the Armenian General Benevolent Union to open a Tumo Center for Creative Technologies in the capital of the Nagorno Karabakh (Artsakh) Republic on Sept 2.
AGBU will cover all operational costs of the center as well as startup costs in the framework of theTUMOxAGBU partnership, while the NKR government is providing a historic building in the city center for the purpose.
The renovation of the premises is made possible through a donation by Karabakh Telecom.
The Stepanakert program is expected to cater to 500 to 1,000 students who will participate twice a week for two hours per session, gaining 21st century skills, and studying animation, filmmaking, web development and game development, as well as supporting skills such as 3D modeling, computer programming, music, photography and graphic design.
Registration will start on Sept 14 and students will begin their Tumo life during the first week of October.
The Tumo Center for Creative Technologies is a free of charge after school program that started in Yerevan and subsequently opened a location in Dilijan. The TUMOxAGBU partnership has already opened a branch in Gyumri and is expected to spread Tumo to other locations in Armenia and beyond.

TUMO Paris is located adjacent to France’s largest metro and railway station and, in the words of Mayor Hidalgo, will become “a communication hub for young people where they can not only acquire new skills but also realize their most creative ideas and embark on digital adventures.”

The initiative to create the new center was born when Anne Hidalgo met Marie Lou Papazian during the Mayor’s visit to Yerevan in 2016, and they agreed to open a TUMO in Paris. After fine working out the details during numerous working meetings, adapting the TUMO software and content to French, and designing the center’s new facilities, the Paris center was finally ready. On the 3rd of July, part of the newly recruited staff of TUMO Paris will come to Yerevan for intensive training at the TUMO headquarters.

“The opening TUMO Paris is very important for us,” says Marie Lou Papazian. “It marks the start of our international expansion, which will allow us to spread TUMO’s new kind of education to the global community, while securing the financial and human resources we need to support the spread of over 25 TUMO centers throughout Armenia.”
