On January 17th, 2011, the Taglyan Arts and Cultural Complex hosted “A Season for Peace”, an inaugural event dedicated to the movement to replace a culture of violence and conflict for a culture of peace and harmony.
The focus of the Global Initiative for Peace is to increase the visibility of every organization and leader who has a desire to use their resources to build a strong alliance to affect world unity.
The Very Rev. Fr. Dajad Dz. V. Yardemian, Vicar General, represented the Primate at the event and offered the invocation.
The event was attended by the honorable Diane E. Watson, PhD, retired U.S. Congresswoman from the 33rd district; Los Angeles City Council, 4th district, Tom Labonge; actress Sheryl Lee Ralph; international harpist Mariea Antoinette; cultural arts coordinator and international acclaimed opera soprano Brenda Jackson, and renowned classical pianist Marvin Christopher Brown-King.
