One Caucasus is an Interdisciplinary arts festival that brings musicians, artists, architects, educators and volunteers from all over the world to the Kvemo Kartli region of Georgia

OUR MISSION

TO BUILD DIALOGUE, UNDERSTANDING AND PEACE IN THE CAUCAUSUS THROUGH A YOUTH CENTERED MUSIC AND ARTS FESTIVAL

We are looking for support for our 2018 Festival from the international community.  The Caucasus region, like many places arond the world, has suffered from both internal and external conflicts. The Kvemo-Kartli borderland is known for being a place where many ethnic and religious groups have been living in peace for many years. Our aim is, with the support of the local municipalities, to create an inspirational & safe space to foster the interaction and collaboration of young people from the entire Caucasus region to develop a culture of coexistence. 

THE FESTIVAL

The festival centers on a music lineup of international and local musicians who perform their traditional style of music, and collaborate to form new cross cultural sounds. One Caucasus Town is the festival headquarters, designed and built by by architects, volunteers and locals and packed with a program of various interdisciplinary activities. The education program brings prominent contemporary musicians and artists to teach local youth throughout the festival through participatory workshops. 

In the past four years One Caucasus has brought 265 musicians from 14 countries and 180 volunteers from 29 countries to Kvemo Kartil to perform their artistry, teach, and inspire the local community. One Caucasus has run 50 workshops, engaging youth through active cultural participation, and has helped organize participatory budgets with local governments.

One Caucasus 2018

This year One Caucasus is hosting its fifth festival, putting on a full musical lineup as well as expanding its contemporary art and theatrical programming. Contemporary artists and theater directors will create site specific theater projects inspired by the works of Polish writer Stanislav Lem in three Georgian villages. As well, The Institute for Aesthletics will run sport and game design workshops with the local communities. 

By supporting One Caucasus, not only are you supporting this amazing festival for young people, you are supporting the crucial model of using the arts to bring people together. All around the world we can use the arts to conquer fear, hatred and division.
