11-15 October

This October, National Youth and Children's Palace is hosting "A Soul for Europe"
How to build a common European public space and foster a sense of responsibility for the future of Europe? Stichting Caucasus Foundation, members of the "A Soul for Europe" initiative and the National Youth and Children's Palace will organize workshops for Georgian students and representatives of civil society. The workshop is targeted at the young generation of Georgia having different ethnic backgrounds and will discuss topics concerning the European crisis, the expectations of young people from European institutions and platforms as well as their own ideas when it comes to the future of the EU and their city in 20 years. The results of the workshop will be presented to a representative from the local authorities during a public event. We are excited that the identified topics will be elaborated in a panel at the annual "A Soul for Europe" Conference 2017 in Berlin.
Project is organized with the general support of Konrad Adenauer Foundation, Tbilisi.


Forum Tblissi "Future of Citizens - Future of Europe"

11-15 October 2017, organized by Stichting Caucasus Foundation /In the frame of 20th anniversary of Foundation/ in partnership with Youth National Palace, results will be presented at the A Soul for Europe Conference 2017 in Berlin. Thanks to the generous support of Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung Tblissi.

Main topics of the workshop:

A Soul for Europe

Think - Imagine - Act - Workshop for young people in Georgia (draft concept)

Thinking of Georgia/Europe -What is the most European moment of your life you can think of?


Imagining Georgia & Europe -a) Imagine Georgian society/your city in 20 years if relations with EU will improve / b) Imagine Georgian society/your city in 20 years if EU does not exist anymore

How the initiative A Soul for Europe and its bottom-up-approach can help to encourage Georgian citizens to be more active for Europe

What should (local/national/European) politicians do to improve our Georgian society? What can I do individually or in a group (as a citizen) to improve my society?

How ASfE could work with the proposals of participants (i.e. social media, handing them over to politicians/decision makers, article/blog entry about wishes and imaginations) What are the most important policy recommendation & ideas for activism?

How to take action with A Soul for Europe and how you can act being a young citizen in Tbilisi

In Tbilisi 60 young Georgians imagined the future and discussed how they can shape their country as citizens.

Workshop experts:

Steve Austen: For me, as one of the earliest adapters of SCF activities in Georgia, I can see the enormous (positive) changes that have taken place in the knowledge, comparative thinking and originality of ideas that are common nowadays in the invited generation.

Many thanks to SCF that has an impressive track record in this field.

The support of Adenauer Foundation was essential for the great success of this encounter with the future decision making class of Georgia.

Andreas Bock: It can be concluded that at least among young, educated Georgians from urban areas there is a strong desire for living in a society that is based on democratic structures, universal values and the rule of law. During the workshop these aspects have been attributed exclusively to the West and more specifically to the European Union.

Dr. Levan Khetaguri: We think that will be important to find the ways to enlarge such workshops out from Tbilisi to other locations and cities as well in other Caucasian countries like Armenia and Azerbaijan.

Body / Movement / Voice – The Multidimensional actor

The workshop organized by CHOREA is based on intensive acting training. The workshop focuses on waking up the “organicity” of an actor, by working with body, dynamic movement, voice, musicality, rhythm, and on applying all these means of expression simultaneously into a singular, complete artistic act. The workshop will be also inspired by the concept of collective actor, based on intensive work with partner, and multidimensional - polyrhythmic and polyphonic - ways of working with the group.

Concert of Ancient Music

Musical direction: Tomasz Krzyżanowski

Cast: Joanna Chmielecka, Hubert Domański, Sandra Gierzek, Dominika Jarosz, Joanna Kłos, Dominika Krzyżanowska, Tomasz Krzyżanowski, Maciej Maciaszek, Tomasz Rodowicz, Elina Toneva

Duration: 60 min. no intermissions


CHOREA artists create a spectacular concert of ancient music. Broken, odd rhythms and polyphonic chants, reconstructed from twenty five hundred years old inscriptions on papyrus and stone, are vibrating with modern, dynamic energy.  We have tried to interpret this ancient musical material and compositions with reference to very rich Balkan musical tradition, and currently we tend to be drifting towards jazz, oriental sounds and contemporary music. Inspired by the ancient art, we create our own art – deeply modern – created on the clash of unknown, almost lost and forgotten European heritage and contemporary language of sounds.

Production: Dominika Krzyżanowska, Tomasz Krzyżanowski


In this musical “mosaicon”, we will hear the Persian temperament, Turkish Orient, Akkadian mystery, Old Greek pathos, Elvish magic, Polish word-games and others. This time, we wanted to find in the rhythm and sound of languages everything that can move and directly touch human sensitivity. We have been searching for the possibility to open, both in the performer and the listener, the new perspective of time, perception and awareness.

There are no translations available.

The EU Eastern Partnership Culture and Creativity Programme has launched a process to implement
the CDIS methodology in Ukraine, Armenia, Georgia, Azerbaijan and Belarus, while Moldova is
already undergoing this process.
The Programme has contracted two distinguished International Experts to facilitate the overall
process of planning, knowledge-sharing and quality assurance. We have also selected National
Partners in participating countries to carry out the data collection and analysis according to
the prescribed methodology under strict guidance and monitoring of the International Experts.
The selected National Partner for Georgia is:
The process started in March 2016 and the final results will be published by December 2016.
What are the Culture for Development Indicators (CDIS)?
The absence of internationally recognized indicators and tools to measure culture’s role in
national development is placing the sector at a comparative disadvantage. Cultural sector
indicators are an internationally applied data baseline on the competence of the creative and
culture sector. They equip countries to be more competitive on the international market;
increase information sharing among policy makers, civil society and commerce; identify
knowledge gaps and needs of cultural operators, and identify networks, good practice and
gaps in cultural and creative sectors.
UNESCO’s Culture for Development Indicators (CDIS) gathers already-available government data from a very wide range of sources to build a single picture of the overall health of the cultural sector. UNESCO has developed a methodology to demonstrate culture’s role as both a driver and enabler of development. This CDIS methodology examines seven key policy dimensions: Economy, Education, Governance, Social Participation, Gender Equality, Communication and Heritage.

On completion of the programme at the end of 2016 the results could be submitted to UNESCO for formal validation, after which they will be incorporated in UNESCO’s database alongside those of the other countries which have taken part in the programme.

EU-Eastern Partnership Culture and Creativity Programme European Union-Eastern Partnership Culture and Creativity Programme 2015-2018 aims at further strengthening cultural policies, particularly the Cultural and Creative Sectors, and to strengthen the capacities of the culture sector and the culture operators in the EaP countries.

It also aims to increase the links between public institutions and private actors and to include civil society in the decision making process, thus enhancing the role of culture as a driving force for reform, promotion of inter-cultural dialogue and social cohesion.

The Programme consists of four main components, including (1) cultural indicators and practical research including strengthening national capacities in evidence-based policy; (2) capacity-building in support of modernisation and reform in the cultural sector; (3) development of international collaboration opportunities and partnerships including through participation in the EU's new major grants programme Creative Europe; and (4) carrying out the communications and visibility strategy. The Programme is administered by a consortium led by the British Council with its partners: The Soros Foundation-Moldova, The National Centre for Culture of Poland, and the Goethe-Institut.

In Casablanca, at the Fabrique Culturelle des Anciens Abattoirs de Casablanca, Chôros brings together Image Aigue and Theatre Nomade artistic teams, developing artistic creations as tools to engage different audiences.

Moroccan Cultural Associations were invited to participate in parallel meetings, focused on discussing cultural education in the country.

წიგნი ეძღვნება მსოფლიო და პოლონური თეატრის ცნობილ და მნიშვნელოვან რეჟისორს, თეორეტიკოსს, მხატვარს ტადეუშ კანტორს (1915-1990). წელს მსოფლიო მისი დაბადებიდან 100 წელს აღნიშნავს და კრიკოტეკის შექმნის 60 წელს. იგი გახლავთ პლასტიკური ავანგარდისა და მხატვრის თეატრის შემქმნელი. წიგნში თავმოყრილია მისი უნიკალური წარმოდგენების აღწერა, მისი მანიფესტები და სადადგმო ჩანაწერები. აღნიშნული გამოცემით ქართველ მკითხველს პირველად ეძლევა საშუალება ვრცლად გაეცნოს ამ ხელოვანს ვინც სერიოზული გავლენა იქონია მეოცე საუკუნის თეატრზე. წიგნი აგებულია როგორც დამხმარე სახელმძღვანელო და თეატრით დაინტერესებული მკითხველის გარდა განკუთვნილია ხელოვნებით დაინტერესებული ფართო საზოგადოებისთვის.
