The Artinfo Georgia will support the community of Vazisubani to transform the suburban area into a rich cultural district by installing high-quality street art on the huge block apartments. These buildings did not represent the diversity of local communities, help people to be proud of who they are and did not emphasize the identity or history of the community.
