fighting imperialism | culture week tbilisi

The middle of November was marked by Culture Week in Tbilisi, organised by Sofia Tchkonia, this annual event carries an important role in Georgian artistic traditions and the visibility of young artists on the global level. Happening during challenging times, this year’s main message was the support of Ukraine and a united fight against the common enemy and its imperialism through the power of art. The present realities of the Russian invasion of Ukraine aren’t something new to Georgia, unfortunately, it’s very relatable to Georgians, as they came through the pain and grief of losing fathers, brothers, and husbands during wars led by Russia.
