Batumi and an open air Cinema in the Summer nights
We have been invited to take part in the Batumi Urban Art Festival “Art Active” 2014, organized by “Lets meet Europe” (Action Global Communications) with 2 local curators: Tamara Bokuchava (social photography Caucasus foundation), Nini Palavandishvili (GeoAIR).
The urban art festival “Art Active” is the first of its type in Georgia. It represents part of the EU funded project “Culture Factory” since 2013. The Urban art takes inspiration from many countries of Europe and addresses directly and immediately the general public of any segment of audience, especially youth. Events meant to propose the best samples of community based urban art from different countries of Europe, and show how dialogue and shared good feelings are possible beyond linguistic and cultural diversity.
The main concept is to use tool of community art for integrating local community especially youth. The idea is to communicate values for ecology, environmental protection and change the way we look at trash. With our urban interaction we get closer to the duality consumption / waste and its social and environmental impact. The event is joint work with local students to construct an artistic installation for open-air cinema using plastic bags and used tires.
Construction will take place in the Batumi Contemporary art Centre from 22 to 29th of August and during last two days, 28-29 of August, there will be an official inauguration of the open-air cinema installation.
