June 3, 2019, Yerevan. The International Child Protection Day was particularly festive at the Cafesjian Center for the Arts (CCA) this year, as the Center also marks its 10th anniversary in 2019. On this occasion, more than 200 schoolchildren fashioned a representation of the CCA 10th anniversary logo first with balloons, and then with flashlights. In addition, children created flags featuring the Center’s artworks, as part of “Your Flag” creative program implemented with the support of Beeline.
Visitors also had the opportunity to participate in the newly launched educational project “Create Your Journey,” implemented with Beeline's support. In the scope of this project, they explored artworks exhibited at the Center, by completing a set of interactive assignments.
Vahagn Marabyan, CCA Acting Executive Director, congratulated children on this special holiday and noted: “On the occasion of International Child Protection Day, we have designed an interesting program of events in collaboration with our loyal partner Beeline, thus striving to make this holiday memorable for children.
