-East is here-
Community art event
22 March 2014
The "East is Here" community art event was held in Yerevan with the aim to present Eastern cultural and spiritual heritage to the Armenian society. During the event the representatives of the New Armenia NGO offered the guests to participate in different competitions and activities raising awareness on the culture and traditions of Easten Countries.
Since 22 Feb the NGO "New Armenia" has organized "East is here" on Facebook. Every 5 days the organizers were posting very actual questions to think over from the Buddhist Sutras in English and Armenian on the Tibet Center page. In this way organizers wanted find out what and how people think about happiness, sadness, sorrow and other important questions. By offering the community to think about these eternal questions organizers aimed to make people reevaluate their lives, to review the real values and their attitude towards life.
The closing of this online activity took place in the park next to Moskovyan Lake in Yerevan where the special guest of the event, a Monk from Tibet reviewed the answers to the questions.
The activity was organized within the frames of CAUCULT Caucasus Cultural Initiatives Network project.
