The aim of the association is to preserve, promote, foster and advance, in a manner consistent with the public interest, the Armenian culture in Diaspora.

Its activities include folkloric dance group, drama, cultural nights, radio program, social functions and community gatherings.

The Armenian 'Nor Serount' Folkloric Dance Group has a proud history of outstanding performances in both Sydney and Melbourne. The dance group with over 50 members first came on stage with performances at Parramatta Leagues Club in 1989. This has been followed by a number of exclusive dance concerts at University of Technology Sydney - Kuringai Campus, Melbourne's Monash University, Zenith Theatre in Chatswood and Ryde-Eastwood Leagues Club.

The dance group also performs at the National Folkloric Festivals held at the Sydney Opera House each year. Appearances by the dance group have also been made at the NSW State Library and a number of cultural functions in the community. The dance lessons are conducted free of charge and run by volunteer instructors.

The 'Nor Serount' Cultural Association also administers the 'Voice of Nor Serount' Armenian Radio program on community station 2RRR (Ryde Regional Radio) 88.5FM. The program has been on air since 16th November 1988 and broadcasts every Sunday from 7.00pm to 9.00pm. The 'Voice of Nor Serount' radio features the latest local and international news, sports and current affairs as well as a mix of traditional and contemporary Armenian music. It is entertaining and informative community radio at its best.

It is also the first Armenian radio program that in July, 1997 was launched on the Internet, which can be heard at any time and anywhere in the world on www.hunchak.org.au

The Nor Serount Ladies Auxiliary committee works in tandem with the Armenian Nor Serount Cultural Association by providing practical solutions to community functions that includes: catering, preparation of traditional Armenian foods and drinks, seating arrangements for gatherings, venue hiring acumen as well as caring for children and organising games and prizes at community functions.
