THE BARRELS – Looking Back at the History of a Building
Talk Shows during ARé performing arts festival 2021: In Between

If growth is the goal, looking back is an invaluable tool. Nevertheless, reflecting on the past isn’t always easy. Sometimes it can be painful. It can also just feel challenging to conceptualize the somewhat vague practice of “looking back.” One way or another, it is important for those around us that we take accountability for mistakes we have made because it demonstrates that we are committed to reducing harm.
The talk shows we invite you to participate in are around a topic that reflects the story of a building in Yerevan -The Barrels (the building of HayArt Cultural Centre) -simultaneously reflecting on the story of Independent Armenia a state.
