One Caucasus is arguably the most inspirational Festival in the whole Caucasus region. And these are the first calls for co-creating One Caucasus in 2019.
About One Caucasus
One Caucasus is not only place where young people from the whole Caucasus region meet but it is a real platform of the joint work across the conflict lines – in architecture and construction, education, music, art and other disciplines. One Caucasus resulted in dozens of films, animations, stories and interdisciplinary activities created by more than 800 kids from Armenian, Azerbaijani and Georgian villages across the Kvemo-Kartli region. It is also a place where 29 new international music projects had their own premieres. One Caucasus also initiated first ever participatory budgets in Caucasus. Many of the results of our work you can watch at www.youtube.com/OneCaucasus channel.
Our current situation
After five years of creating and conducting One Caucasus Festival and Program we are safe in securing the basic funds for making One Caucasus in 2019. We see an interest from new local government of Marneuli in working together with One Caucasus.
About One Caucasus Co-creators
Since its start in 2014 – One Caucasus Festival has been co-created by the amazing team of One Caucasus International Volunteers. Our task is to use our talents, professional skills and imagination to create one of the most inspiring and inclusive festivals not only in Caucasus. Each year for our Call for Volunteers we got dozens of applications from people from all around the world. The co-creators of One Caucasus were the people from such countries as Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Bulgaria, Czech, Egypt, India, Iran, Kenya, Lithuania, Martinique (Fr.), Mexico, Nepal, New Zealand, Nigeria, Pakistan, Poland, Russia, Senegal, Spain, Tunisia, Turkey, USA, Ukraine, Uzbekistan and many more.
Together we raise One Caucasus Town, we run multidisciplinary workshops for and with local communities of multi-ethnic region of Kvemo Kartli. We support the grassroots promotion and information of the festival and the program and logistics of this unique meeting. The final team of the volunteers will be a combination of professional architects, artists, cooks, educators, filmmakers, journalists and other practitioners with the young activists.
