About One Caucasus
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. 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. One Caucasus resulted in dozens of films, animations, stories, and interdisciplinary activities created by more than 1300 kids from Armenian, Azerbaijani, and Georgian villages across the Kvemo-Kartli region, Georgia. It is also a place where 34 new international music projects had their own premieres. One Caucasus also initiated first-ever participatory budgets in the Caucasus. Many of the results of our work you can watch on our YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/OneCaucasus).

In the time of the barbaric Russian invasion of Ukraine - all of us at One Caucasus stand with the people of Ukraine - defenders of freedom and peace in our world. Every gesture of solidarity should also have practical support - so we decided that this year we will finance travel expenses to Georgia for all selected co-creators from Ukraine.

After an objectively challenging and the same time amazing August 2021 for One Caucasus - we are more than excited to state our readiness to continue the Program and Festival in 2022. Our work will include creative education, interdisciplinary and multimedia art, participatory architecture, multilingual promotion and outreach, research and documentation, cooking and logistics - and finally: inter-genre and international music. Every year, in each of the above fields, we worked on-site in Georgia, but we learnt also how to work online effectively.

As of April 2022 - One Caucasus is going to happen on-spot in Tserakvi but we will have tasks for on-line volunteers too.

So this year we want to find people most of whom will work with us in Tserakvi, but also those who would like to share their talents in international, on-line task teams.

Each year One Caucasus volunteers co-create teams that make this Festival a unique event. This edition, One Caucasus 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

By filling this form you have a chance to join one of the most inspiring international volunteers' teams.

Extended deadline: 10th 24th of May 23:59 GMT, 2022

If we meet on-site - we would meet on the 9th of August in Tbilisi and travel together to Tserkavi. The main festival days are planned for the 25-28 of August. The Program will end on 29th of August.
