On June 3, 2019, members of Hamazkayin in São Paulo, Brazil, participated in the city’s sixth annual festival celebrating immigrants and refugees.
There were 41 countries represented at the celebration, which was attended by over 20,000 people over the three days that it was open. Hamazkayin participated in two specialty areas of the festival, showcasing Armenian foods in one and artwork such as needlework in the other.
In the fine arts section of the festival, the Arevik children’s group and Tsirani participated. Tsirani members, who are older, include native Brazilians interested in learning Armenian dance and attend weekly classes.
This is just one of the ways that Hamazkayin works to keep the Armenian spirit alive. Events like this allow for the world to see the joys of the Armenian world, as well as observing the beauty of other cultures.
