HYE CULTURAL OUTREACH PROJECT
For over a decade, the Shahan Natalie Family Foundation, a California-based non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, has been organizing events which educate, enrich, and foster appreciation for Armenian culture in international communities worldwide. In the spring of 2011, we embarked on a fresh initiative, Hye Cultural Outreach Project, to expand our outreach efforts.
The primary objective of the project is the invitation of artists, scholars and other professionals to the U.S. to share their knowledge and expertise about the millennial Armenian cultural heritage, enhanced by state-of-the-art technologies. These lectures and presentations are recorded and made available online with the purpose of reaching local and international audiences. In May-June 2011, Hye Cultural Outreach Project organized a series of presentations in Northern and Southern California cities through Komitas All-In-1 presentations. Garegin Chugaszyan, Executive Director of the Information Technoligies Foundation, was invited from Armenia in the spring of 2011 to present notable multimedia CD/DVD-ROMs: recent “Komitas: the Life & Works” (2009), and two World Summit Award-winning “Aram Khachaturian: the Life & Works” (2005) and “Armenian Genocide: 1915-1923,” as well as “Paruyr Sevak: Those Are My Words” (2004).
You can obtain these outstanding multimedia CD/DVD-ROMS, which, to date, are probably the most complete electronic presentation of the corresponding topics, by donating to SNFF.

One great way to effectively contribute to the dissemination and popularization of the best of the Armenian cultural achievements, we believe, is ensuring their availability at libraries and universities across the world. We strongly encourage the supporters and admirers of the Armenian culture to donate these products to their choice of educational institutions. Pick a school, university and/or a library in the U.S or abroad, and we will deliver your gift of knowledge and cultural wealth. Our donation forms provide you with the option of donating your choice of gifts (such as “Komitas: The Life & Works,” “Aram Khachatrian: The Life & Works,” “Armenian Genocide: 1915-1923”) to an educational/cultural institution. This initiative is a part of our Hye Cultural Outreach Prject.
