Talk in Armenian NOR HARATCH AND ISSUES IN WEST ARMENIAN PUBLICATIONS by Jiraïr Tcholakian

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 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.
