CHOICE is the partnership project of ALDA (France), EuroBelarus (Lithuania), Centre for Cultural Management (Ukraine), ICOM (Moldova), Millenium Foundation (Armenia) and Centre of Social Innovations (Belarus) that aims to preserve cultural heritage and strengthen the cooperation among organizations working in the sphere of culture.

The project is implemented in Armenia, Moldova, Belarus and Ukraine. The partners launched in their countries a call for proposal for organisations. Afterwards, once the selection of applicants was completed, the partners also organised an event of information and dissemination for the selected organisations. In the end, around 35 projects will get funded from the 4 above mentioned countries.

In Gyumri, on 5-7 December, Millenium Foundation organized the workshop for Armenian applicants together with participants from Moldova, Ukraine and Belarus. “Local Democracy Agency” Foundation, which also applied to the call and passed the second phase, participated in the workshop. The workshop was animated by an expert from Belarus, Igor Rahansky, who presented the concept of heritage, culture, perceptions of those concepts from the point of view of different cultures and values, while, Tatyana Poshevalova, Director of EuroBelarus, presented the main demands and strong points of the application for the second phase, and Vyacheslav Chernyavski, Financial manager of EuroBelarus, explained the points for the financial management and reporting of the project. The workshop was accompanied by active discussions, answers and questions that promoted the perception of the project and made it more understandable and tangible. Finally, the President of Union of Non-Governmental organizations, Mr. Tshartaryan, delivered a speech about the cultural programme in Armenia and Gyumri, the difficulties and visions.
