WATERTOWN — Stories of refugees fleeing their homes have dominated headlines recently, with many from cities like Aleppo that are familiar to Armenians. Project SAVE, perceiving the tragic similarities to events of a century ago, seeks to share the narratives of Armenians’ journeys from our own archives, illuminated with multiple photos. The selected images illustrate Armenian immigrants’ and refugees’ struggles and accomplishments as they assimilate and contribute to their adopted societies, while maintaining their identity.
The 2018 calendar, with the theme “Our Armenian Journey,” pays tribute to those who face hardships, separations, and reunions during their journey.
Graphic Artist Vartus Varadian has designed the calendar in a way that invites the viewer to investigate what the photographs represent.
Project SAVE’s calendar is the organization’s major fundraising effort, supporting ongoing work of collecting, documenting, and preserving photographs of all subjects and periods relating to Armenian people.
Calendar Sponsors are acknowledged in each month with their short messages of honor or remembrance of family, friends, and heroes who have contributed to the Armenian Journey.
Calendars make great Christmas gifts for family and friends. They will be mailed out right after Thanksgiving, or can be picked up in our Watertown Square office. To order, visit www.projectsave.org.
