Suggestions Needed: from Angela

I wanted to ask for your suggestions for next year's summer seminars' topic. Also, if you would like to suggest people for leading the courses and giving presentations, please, post them in the blog.
Any contribution is welcome.
Subject to funding, there might be a possibility to organize an alumni network meeting sometime in March. I will keep you informed about the outcomes.

Welcome speech :-))))

Finally I could log in and can post my original comment as a new posting.

Another suggestion will follow this one.

you rock. Thanks a lot. I will also tell last year's participants about the blog. Meanwhile I suggest that we exchange the links related to our professional activities that we have mentioned during the presentations and beyond.
Here are some contributions from me:
--for some texts on Armenian art: www.naac.am
--ACCEA updates its website quite often: www.accea.info
--Utopiana's site is always underconstruction: www.utopiana.am
--for the alternative Armenian pavilion in Venice Biennale: www.underconstructionhome.net
--A version of my presentation that did not take place, can be found on SCCA-Ljubljana's website: http://www.worldofart.org/current/archives/28

This is all from me for now. I will aslo make a selection of the photos you left on the desktop and post them. Also, Grigor is preparing a dvd. I will get hold of it and copy for all of you once I go back to Armenia in October.

Stay tuned.
