Committed to the tradition of introducing Azerbaijan’s cultural heritage to the world and making it accessible to readers in various languages, Azercell Telecom LLC, the leading mobile operator of the country, has launched a new social project to develop audiovisual content based on Shusha authors’ poetry&prose.
In accordance with the declaration of 2022 as the "Year of Shusha" by the President of Azerbaijan, Azercell is initiating a special content consisting of Shusha’s cultural heritage in Azerbaijani, Turkish, English, Russian, and French languages designed as audiobooks, audio plays, comics, animation, podcasts, and video content.
For the first time, Azercell will create a special audio play shelf by staging Najaf Bey Vazirov's work "Еv tərbiyəsinin bir şəkli" ("A Picture of Home Education") in the form of a polyphonic audio play in Azerbaijani. Furthermore, information about the authors and historical figures born in Shusha will be presented to large audiences in various languages in the form of podcasts, comics, and animations.
