The Cafesjian Center for the Arts Celebrates International Child Protection Day

June 01, 2013
On June 1, the Cafesjian Center for the Arts invites everyone to celebrate the International Child Protection Day. Every year this grand event gathers children and their parents from all over Armenia, including children from orphanages and with special needs.

The main partner of the event is ARMECONOMBANK. 

The festivities will start at 17:00 at the Cafesjian Sculpture Garden, where children will participate in interactive arts and crafts workshops. In addition, a puppet show, clowns and cartoon characters will entertain the young visitors of the event. The concert program will start at 19:00, with participation of various children’s groups. A big surprise has also been prepared for adults: DORIANS rock band will give a wonderful open air concert at 21:00. The celebration will culminate in a magnificent display of fireworks over the city of Yerevan.

“The Cafesjian Center for the Arts continues its tradition of celebrating the International Day for Protection of Children. This year we are glad to cooperate with ARMECONOMBANK, which happily joined us, becoming the main partner of the event.  By enriching the event with interactive arts and crafts workshops, we want to provide a creative, interesting and joyful environment for our children,” stated Mr. Vahagn Marabyan, the Acting Executive Director of the Cafesjian Center for the Arts. 

The Cafesjian Center for the Arts is dedicated to bringing the best of contemporary art to Armenia and presenting the best of Armenian culture to the world. Inspired by the vision of its founder, Mr. Gerard L. Cafesjian, the Center offers a wide variety of exhibitions. Having celebrated its grand opening in November 2009, the Cafesjian Center for the Arts continues to exhibit unique works of modern art and offers a diverse program of visiting lecturers, films, concerts, and numerous educational initiatives for children and adults.
