World Labyrinth Day was celebrated on Saturday at the Armenian Heritage Park on the Greenway.
At this annual occasion, people gather at the Armenian Heritage Park to celebrate and recognize the immigrant experience. Opening remarks were given by Ted Touloukain, AIA, Board Chair, Boston Society of Architects Foundation and Principal of Touloukian & Touloukian. This was followed by readings from the Eliot School’s fourth graders. The students, led by Coordinator of Culture and School Climate Morgan Atkins, read “I AM” poems, each taking on the persona of an immigrant arriving in a new country.
There was an introduction to walking the labyrinth, and then all were invited to “walk as one in peace and harmony.” This celebration spreads across the world as individuals in over 35 countries join to walk the labyrinth in their town or city at the same time.
