Europe is all about togetherness, we will use art to bring together the Georgian and Armenian people in a new understanding of commonalities in the context of the bigger European family – Georgian and Armenian artists will collaborate to create public art works to be displayed in Tbilisi and Yerevan
Yerevan, Armenia, Tbilisi, Georgia
We believe Art is one of the best ways to connect Georgia & Armenia since it is a space that is free for expression and understanding. Artists from both countries have always interesting views about their own cultures and have many ways of creating thought-provoking pieces bringing more people together. For that reason, the project targeted to facilitate a dialogue between Armenian & Georgian artists for bringing together culturally aware elements of both societies. This will create a strong basis to promote and spread the newly-combined art elements to Europe and to purposely get the European communities familiar with the fusion of the New European Art which would involve both the fundamentals of each country’s cultural values and the sparkles of the contemporary joint ideals.
The successful outcome of Project will be calling the current perceptions of Georgia in Armenia and vice versa into question by facilitating a dialogue between neighboring countries, bringing together culturally aware elements of both societies to discuss the modern relationship between them, making it easier to meet people, and defining cultural values across the borders and creating interest in the life of both countries.
The aim of the project is to create a large international community of young people who will have a good platform for sharing ideas, expressing their culture and talents, exchanging cultural developments, will be open to variety of approaches in art, viewpoints and thoughts, and will provide an outstanding opportunity to express their creative spirit.
The Project duration will be 4 months and will involve young, as well as experienced artists from Armenia and Georgia (20 participants from each country). During the first phase of the Project the participants will split into several groups depending on their sphere of interest and start working on joint projects to be exhibited in Yerevan and Tbilisi. Besides, the Project will include two workshops (1 in Yerevan and 1 in Tbilisi), organization of two large scale exhibitions to demonstrate jointly and independently created pieces of art, cultural tours for visiting participants, creation of web-site and on-line community for future networking and information sharing and dissemination of printed materials.
