About "Posters for Change"

 

This project is dedicated to the 106th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide and all the subsequent years of genocide denial.

I believe art can be a powerful tool to change things in society and in the world.

The concept for this project was born from the idea of using art as a tool/medium for global connection and community healing.

Years of genocide denial and the recent war in Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) brought global moral injury to our collective nation, and the souls of Armenians worldwide are severely wounded.

In order to heal from moral injury as an individual and as a nation, we all need to connect, contribute, and participate to bring positive thoughts for the future.

My mission with "Posters for Change" is to:

  • bring awareness to the non-Armenian community about the Armenian Genocide, genocide denial, and recent war crimes in Artsakh, and
  • bring positive thoughts and a vision for the future of Armenia for global strength and healing.
