4:24 am
this says to me all this is an afterschool program for a young 12 8 to 18 year old they come free of charge and this is the place where art meets technology and where students get to create their or nonbeing plan it is a place where we put them in an environment where they can absorb as much as possible. i don't. know that he's going to do stuff in my opinion and i'm not. and that's ok. the. one of the beauties of 2 more is being
4:25 am
able to invite the amazing professionals from around the world sometimes i mean yes sometimes and i mean yes but who knows by the way that sprouts coming and being able to teach and bombard them with all the solo each and every source says that this professionals have to use all of the kind of hearing about artists who each one of us can share. music can share some beautiful ideas to work in a team to collaborate to create something really very well you know if you feel it's really unique opportunity and i'm very excited by it 1st of the bit gifu if you love me this interest and work for me just sucked it up on your arm and you into my i don't have the grades and if you feel it's ok you learn from philo but in school you fail it's bad you have to do more good than stuff so should we have them

4:30 am
this workshop was amazing and it's very fun to work in omar my mind is just full with all that i learned here i think every kid wants to be here to be a tomorrow if it's amazing. being teenager is really difficulty and everything else like a lot of the r.c. church teachers are from so geared to. them so you are a bit confused about what you learned but here you are to him it's news to people who have new ideology able to tell you a lot so this is really going to place here they say here is your have trained here is your campus go and do whatever you want to do. it's the 1st time they used and the 1st time they do
4:31 am
a compass so for me this one mature firesign minute i can sort of choice so for the $1000.00 and i think the outcome of. the students was really impressed. right then. by the way the loss was 11 years ago we decided to move out which was quite a decision. but within the realize we're moving here for for that long with other coming for one or 2 year assignment. which ended up being an 11 year kind of lifetime decision. i think that the thing we murdered about most having 5 children at different ages was their education we didn't know whether we were ruining their future or giving them a huge opportunity. i remember our. one of our younger son's crying when he
4:32 am
1st saw the can the school conditions in which he would would have to study just the physical state of the school or something he was not used to and of course any time your child cries a parent the things what am i doing today it turned out ok though. their me education system is very traditional it's a lot of rote learning you go home you do your homework you come back the teacher lectures you now a lot of activities in class i had a lot of tests the saying indefinite left its mark because most of my speeches at least were teachers back then so their form of teaching their form of shape teaching and stayed with them was in the you know the new. things. the new life sounds like keeping up with because. my parents are very large from
4:33 am
education obviously my mother being an education specialist and my dad always had a passion for it. what army and school lacked in their creativity and innovation they really fostered ish. that they never got the chance to do. i'm going to need some of the green i'll. give break is the 2nd city i read. was demolished by. earthquake he really didn't get to recover completely after the earthquake you can still see the damages and. after they were never able to cover and that still is very vivid in their memories. a lot of international came
4:34 am
and they try to rebuild it but it was mismanage the fact that he was dispatching a lot of cooption. misuse of. resources it was a waste that's a shame of course we're all trying to recover that now and leave the past and think of the future and it's happening but it took time. so this is to hold your marine we open the doors a year ago we started this project with 600 sudanese mine if you up 299-2500 we have a waiting list off $300.00 more if. we consider holding the line.
4:35 am

4:40 am
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh i believe that this them a stray sions have a positive aspect to the lives of the citizens in armenia it's part of the growing pains that the population is going through 2 words a brighter future and a more democratic future for the country. and i guess it is a learning moment for all of us it is a learning moment for our students because we're not only thinking about teaching them giving them resources but we also want them to become active citizens people who understand what they want make their own choices for their lives this country needs active citizens needs active participants and these young generation
4:41 am
the new generation is going to be part of it. the 2nd quarter and that people see what you're doing when we 1st asked his deputy which leaders to come to be on our main idea was to drill the performing go to wall in the city. they want to go back to for me to paint something and they gave me a lot of support. to a good spin to the point. of view and you put something to you think from. i go to british students you're with me. i wanted to bring all the
4:42 am
16 but it's a bit hard to recall 16. they helped me a lot when everything. i asked for permission by the was of about a mission it was not a written permission and i knew that i shouldn't go for it and promotion once you go toward a compression you get into detail and i knew that going to the tele was going to be enough. for you 1st thing to do to preserve the childhood you do after destroy the world and noumenon wish to watch it or not store things are to me and for me it is like oh and i have little or save your i don't know from each and every one can look at it in a different way the graph it is of course controversial. you're doing art but sometimes the government or or day authorities are not seeing it as an art piece they're seeing it as damaging the walls of the city. so the fact that
4:43 am
we're participating in that like that is something important for us because it means that we're bringing change we're bringing in a new culture it's just. for your. little. sister. the fact that everybody complains about schools and that schools are killing creativity is sad if we can turn education into something
4:44 am
it's not about fun that it's something interesting and something that's the most important and making people like what they're doing and i guess would create more spaces and places to more where you can make that happen this can be a model towards what education should be geared to and how learning should happen. when i've been planning the 5th anniversary of tumult for a while everybody was looking forward for this event and this day but because of some incidents happening in the city. the opposition started protesting and organizing meetings and in the middle of the night last night we discussed it again and again and we felt something is wrong we should not do it kinetic our search ain't gonna know my child's heart on my source telling me to tar all my.
