Jiraïr Tcholakian, editor of Nor Haratch (Paris) will speak about current issues in Western Armenian language publications and the challenges of revitalizing a "national treasure". Nor Haratch is an Armenian-language newspaper published in Paris since 2009. A French-language supplement is also published weekly. A few months after Europe’s long-running Armenian newspaper Haratch (1925-2009) ceased publication, Nor Haratch was launched as a new and separate publication by a group of French-Armenian intellectuals.
As well as a editing Nor Haratch, Jiraïr Tcholakian is active in the Mgnig Workshop, a weekly alternative school for bilingual children in Paris, has wide experience in Armenian theatre and is a regular member of ensemble Akn - Armenian liturgical chant.
