One Caucasus Festival for a musician or a band is not only an opportunity to have a concert among other great musicians but it is also a space where professional musicians from different countries, cultures & genres come to work together on common projects. Some of these projects find the continuation even after the days of the Festival and last through many months.
If you are a teacher working in Kvemo-Kartli or with minority groups in other regions of Georgia - this call is for you!
This is the 8th Call for the International Volunteer Program of One Caucasus. One Caucasus is arguably the most inspirational Festival in the whole Caucasus region.
Here you can find most important information about One Caucasus International Volunteer Program. It is divided into two sections - work on-site and on-line.
The Caucasus suffers from many conflicts. The region of Kvemo-Kartli is a borderland of Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan and is known for being a place where many ethnic and religious groups have been living in peace for many years.
One Caucasus Festival is organized every year during summer in Tserakvi in the Kvemo-Kartli region. Each year the main part of work for One Caucasus starts in the first half of August when the international volunteers arrive and start to work in various task teams - both with the aim of building the festival and by working with the region's communities on a multitude of empowerment projects.
One Caucasus Festival brings together musicians, artists, architects, educators and volunteers from all over the world.
Join as a co-creator a musician or simply come to Kvemo-Kartli late August to enjoy ONE CAUCASUS 2021!
Entry to the festival is, and always will be, free of charge. Read the full story.
HOW TO GET THERE
One Caucasus is not only the 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.
It is definitely neither the biggest nor the most expensive event. However, thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and local know-how we are always able to keep our co-creators fed, housed and busy with a variety of tasks: from wine-tasting and gorging on delicious khinkali, to roof repairs, digital documentation or handling social media!
Our task is to use our talents, professional skills and imagination to create one of the most inspiring and inclusive festivals not only in the region. Each year One Caucasus volunteers co-create teams that make this Festival a unique event. This edition, ONE CAUCASUS 2021 will host 5 different teams again:
1. Workshops Team (Education and Art)
2. Participatory Architecture & Construction Team
3. Festival Information, Promotion and Documentation Team
4. Cooking for One Caucasus Team
5. Logistics & Organization Support Team
CONNECT to sign up for opportunities in 2022.
We invite you to reach out to us and become part of the program. The festival is not a music event exclusively and historically ONE CAUCASUS hosted dance classes, yoga, taekwondo, visual and performative arts classes or creative toy-making workshops for kids, among many, many others. Would you like to take your talent to the road and pass it on in the mountainous setting of Kvemo-Kartli?
How can your passion shape the Festival? The deadline of the Call for Musicians is 15th of July, 23:59.

We are glad to introduce you another participant of One Caucasus 2020: Infest !
Until 2008 Nick Infest with other DJs were actively listening to various types of music and playing some DJ sets. They were organizing just home music parties before realized it is really worth to share music with others. They started to invite new guests, strangers and as a result expanded a scale of their music performance.
We are presenting the next headliner of One Caucasus 2020: Shaban Mamedov (Georgia) !
Shaban Mamadov (vocalist, keyboardist) is definitely a Marneuli music sensation. He mixes pop, jazz and traditional Georgian and Azerbaijani music. He studies classic vocal at the Tbilisi Mikeladze Central Music School.
