And suddenly, the second week was up and difficult farewells were to be made. Thank you to all our supporters for making this project possible, in particular Dr. Arpi Hamalian of Concordia University, Montreal whose guidance and important financial support made all of this possible.
What better place to regroup with all the Zartonktsis than on the way out of Stepanakert heading for Yerevan? Our final stop was at the Papik Tatik ''We are our Mountains'' monument representing the Artsakh population's will to survive all odds—to stay on the land they feel grounded on, part of.
Now, to support the best talent we found—to support the great-grandchildren of Papik Tatik—more funds are needed! No worries, at the Atken Armenian Foundation, sound decisions are made by professionals in the field and there are absolutely no administrative costs. Yes, all your donation monies go to support our ''Zartonktsis'' in their pursuit of excellence in the arts.
