On March 17, ALMA will play host to children and their families for a fun-filled afternoon! A broad range of activities including Armenian dance lessons, taught by curators Susan and Gary Lind-Sinanian, arts and crafts, costume dress-up and a special puppet show will engage with children and teach them about the life, history and culture of the Armenian people.
Dora Kalajian Tevanian, founder of the Ethnic Arts Center, will present "The Talking Fish", a Puppet Show told in English with some Armenian phrases. "The Talking Fish" folktale was gathered by Hovhannes Toumanian in Historic Armenia and depicts the loving kindness of an old man whose generosity is repaid. The Puppet Show is supported in part by a grant from the Watertown Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
A delicious snack station will be provided with drinks and kid-friendly finger foods. The event attracted more than 100 people last year, transforming the museum into an exciting playground.
