The Tekeyan Cultural Association (TCA) of London was founded in 1975 and is affiliated to the London charitable organisation, the Tekeyan Trust (Registered Charity No. 278428). The TCA is named after the renowned poet, teacher and man of letters, Vahan Tekeyan. It is part of a network of similarly affiliated branches in about a dozen countries covering North America, Europe, the Middle East and Armenia. It acts as a major cultural organisation bridging Armenian Diaspora communities with one another and with Armenia. The various branches have their own regional cultural centres, schools and publications.
In its early years, the TCA organised numerous cultural events including performances by the Armenian State Dance Company at Sadler’s Wells, the Armenian State Folk Song and Dance Company at the Royal Albert Hall, the Armenian State Choir as well as staging sundry arts exhibitions and concerts; and who could forget Tokyo Joes…
The revitalized London Chapter invites you to consider membership and joining us in promoting Armenian culture by organising public events, cultural exhibitions, lectures and in printing a newsletter promoting the TCA in its mission and activities.
