YouthLinks Europe is the third in a series of Hamazkayin programs inviting young Armenians to explore their culture and  identity. Following the success of the Hamazkayin Youth Forum and Hamazkayin ArtLinks, we are launching YouthLinks Europe, a program specifically designed for young Armenians, to offer them the opportunity to engage with others who share their perception of selfhood, and  to interact with renowned artists and intellectuals.

At YouthLinks you will:

  • Immerse yourself in a friendly Armenian environment in picturesque Venice;
  • Gain new perspectives on Armenian culture through workshops;
  • Participate in various activities designed to expand your awareness of Armenia and Armenians;
  • Discuss issues of Armenian identity with others who share it with you;
  • Discover the treasures of the Mekhitarist monastery of San Lazzaro;
  • Visit the sights of Venice

Connecting young Armenians with their ancestral roots and raising their awareness of selfhood.
