New York Encounter: Beauty in Manhattan  

New York Encounter New York Encounter


JANUARY 14 - 17, 2011

New York Encounter is a four-day cultural festival organized by Crossroads Cultural Center and Communion and Liberation. The idea of a "cultural festival" starts from the perception that there is a need for a fresh start in education and a new vibe for cultural initiatives. It also starts from the desire to communicate in New York the remarkable vastness, openness, richness, and profundity of cultural life and a passion for what is human that springs from the education to the Catholic faith taking place in Communion and Liberation.
