This week, host Mihran Toumajan of the Armenian Assembly of America Radio Hour, had the pleasure of interviewing two members of the Board of Directors of the Armenian Artists Project (AAP), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in San Diego, CA in 2018 by Mr. Jim Mouradick. AAP operates an online digital art gallery to support Armenian artists living and working in Armenia, by providing them with a platform to promote, exhibit and sell their original artwork to a wide international market.
During the first half of the show, Toumajan had an insightful conversation with AAP Board member and head of operations, Mr. Chris Hokokian.
