Thesaurus Armenorum – in other words,
the Treasury of the Armenians. It is the project that we have been implementing for the last year with a grant from the Ministry of Culture, National Heritage and Sports, the purpose of which was to organize and equip the new seat of the Foundation.
As part of this project, our Archives received professional shelves and a computer for work. In front of the entrance, there is a glass wall with the Foundation’s logo etched in it. In the space that is to perform the exhibition function, we have installed specialized lighting that no museum would be ashamed of. The picture hanging systems were fastened on the walls.
Within the grant we purchased the first two showcases. We were able to hang up finally the pride of our resources – a complete collection of portraits of the Armenian Benedictine Nuns from Lviv, donated to the Foundation. After 70 years they have undergone the necessary maintenance.
After almost a year of strenuous activities and work of the entire team, the interior of the main room is unrecognizable. Only pandemic restrictions prevent us from making our Foundation and its resources available to all interested parties. We hope however that in the spring the situation in this respect will improve and we will be able to celebrate the 16th anniversary of establishing the Foundation for the Culture and Heritage of Polish Armenians with our friends and supporters. We showed the effects of the work achieved thanks to the grant from the Ministry of Culture, National Heritage and Sport, among others in our 2022 calendar and in our annual report.
The project Thesaurus Armenorum – Treasury of the Armenians was co-financed by the Minister of Culture, National Heritage and Sport from the Culture Promotion Fund – a state special purpose fund. Once again, we would like to thank very much for the donation granted, with the hope that the next one we have applied for would also be awarded to us. This will make it possible to finalize the creation of the historical exhibition of the Foundation’s collections. This exhibition would be made available to the inhabitants of Warsaw as well as domestic and foreign tourists visiting our capital.
