The SHIFT initiative is your chance to seize opportunities for innovation in Armenia. It's based on the global ONEArmenia community's conviction that Armenia's potential for educational, humanitarian, environmental and cultural dynamism is limitless--it's about time you took it into your own hands.

In spring 2013, we are calling for anyone in the world over the age of 16 to pitch a project under $10,000 that transforms an element of Armenian culture--be it ancient or modern--into a fresh, 21st century creation. There are no rules as to process or form; we just want you to shift Armenia's culture out of its traditional and historic space and make it the basis for an active, modern-day aesthetic. The winning project will be chosen by the online community in a single round of open voting.

Once selected, the SHIFT project of the season will immediately enter its development phase, nurtured by our creative staff. Video, photo and written material will be put out by our team to spread the word about the project and report its progress to the world.

So what's the catch? All projects (and the labor associated with them) must be implemented in Armenia, with proposals indicating a thorough plan for execution and awareness of ONEArmenia's commitment to transparency. Oh, and none of the award money can go toward the applicant's salary.

That's it. What are you waiting for? Submit before May 25, 2013!
ONEArmenia is a non-profit platform that boosts environmental, humanitarian and cultural projects in Armenia. We use crowd-funding and transparent reporting to connect donors with projects that build positive momentum.
