'... work in progress'
This year the Tskaltubo Art Festival will celebrate its 5th edition. Organised by the IDP Women’s Association of Tskaltubo the festival assembles artists from the region as well as international guests. The festival builds on existing on-site activities in the field of dance, music and visual arts, and initiates collaborative workshops with international artists that culminate in a two-day, public program from 29. - 30.09.2017.
Among the invited artists are Albin Brun and Patricia Draeger (Switzerland) who will give a workshop at the local music school, where young people from the Nakaduli Folk Ensemble (Tskaltubo) can get in touch with contemporary Swiss folk music.
Further, this year’s festival features a focus on diverse cultures from the South Caucasus. Dance and music ensembles from Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan will perform during the public festival and will exchange on their different techniques in a collateral workshop programme.
With this fifth edition, artasfoundation has handed over the full responsibility for the festival to the IDP Women’s Association of Tskaltubo, with its director Lali Grigolava. The team of artasfoundation, with project manager Maja Leo, takes the role of consultants. It assists in financial and fund raising concerns and recommends some additional, international artists for the workshops and the festival.
