About us

Alongside their efforts to eradicate the temporary shelters that became synonymous with the never-ending recovery process in post-Earthquake Gyumri, the “Shirak Centre” NGO and its director Vahan Tumasyan have built their headquarters as a combination of guest house, event space and a depository of artifacts that embody Gyumri’s history and have been rescued from temporary shelters, run-down buildings and carefully restored.
