On 19-20 May it was Vanadzor’s and Gyumri’s turn to host Europe Day celebrations. People of different ages had an opportunity to learn about European cultural diversity through shadow theatre, mini-shows on different European countries, as well as participate in competitions and received surprise gifts. This year, the celebrations are being held under the slogan “Europe is here”. For these celebrations, the Europe Day Anthem is written which is performed by children from different Armenian marzes. The main message of this Anthem is that Europe is here and ready to work for the benefit of all Armenian citizens.
The EU Ambassador joined people in both cities: ‘This celebration is more than about projects implemented in Armenia. Of course, the EU is the biggest donor and investor in Armenia, but it is the European spirit which we share, the spirit of freedom, dignity and solidarity. We face many problems and challenges, but we believe that once in a year we should share our joy. Europe Day is about hope and a better future’.
