Armenian Institute

The Armenian Institute is dedicated to making Armenian culture and history a living experience, through innovative programmes, educational resources, workshops, academic events, exhibitions and performances. We aim to make the rich Armenian heritage relevant to present diaspora life and to build bridges with other peoples within Britain and beyond. We promote interaction, collaboration and networking among ethnic and cultural groups for the enrichment of individuals , communities, and society at large. Since 2001, the Armenian Institute has organised a wide range of projects and events, bringing people together to collaborate on creating new resources and ideas, as well as performances and entertainment.

A library of some 5,000 books forms the core of the Institute's resources and is used for academic research, arts projects, language teaching and dissemination of information about the Armenian world, past and present. A librarian/research advisor is available for consultation and the Institute plans to make the library resources available online. The Children's Corner is outfitted with a full-sized puppet stage as well as computer, books and art supplies, giving full range to children's creative activities.
