MUSIC LINE-UP INGREDIENTS
The project is co-funded by the Marenuli Municipality, the Administration of State Representative in Kvemo Kartli, Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland from the Culture Promotion Fund, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland in framework of the program "Public Diplomacy 2019", Warsaw City Hall, Creative Georgia. RMG company presents the Festival.
Our experience with Transkaukazja, ArtZona and One Caucasus proved that making concerts of great musicians is good but it is much better to create space for professional musicians coming from different countries, cultures & genres to work together. Some of such projects we collected on the music album "Caucasus+. Collection vol.#1: Georgia+" (amazing results of the meetings of the musicians from Georgia with musicians from Poland, Senegal, Jamaica among others). The album will be available during One Caucasus Festival at the venue.
If you want to join inspiring music adventure and work with some of the best musicians from Caucasus and other regions of the world - take part in our call. With the selected musicians we will have individual talks about concerts’ conditions.
One Caucasus is arguably the most inspirational Festival in the whole Caucasus region. And this is the call for co-creators of 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, Georgia. 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. What is very important - we see an interest from a current local government of Marneuli and a regional government of Kvemo Kartli in working together with One Caucasus.
