Hartak Workshop Festival - The Ripple Effect: From Idea to Legacy

The Ripple Effect: From Idea to Legacy

River Fest Armenia is an annual overnight Woodstock-esque charity event which brings musicians together for a community cause. Its mission is to create a positive change, by giving back to the community and inspiring future generations of Armenians, using arts, music, and common cultural interests.

During this workshop, the participants will learn where the idea of River Fest Armenia come from, why it is so important and what challenges the organizers faced during its organization. They will learn more about River Fest Armenia from behind the scenes, from inception to organization and to the creation of a legacy.
