For whatever reason you want more parks for the city, whether it’s for quiet contemplation, socialization or a clean air to breath, the fact still stands – the reason you want more, is that there isn’t sufficient number of them

Homophobic Nation

Homophobic Nation

Gay men and lesbians are subject to legal discrimination in housing, employment, and fundamental civil rights. And transgender individuals are stigmatized and discriminated against.

This reinforces a fact that equality on the legal level isn’t the same as social equality. Minority stress—a cause of health disparities—is a theory about the impact of prejudice and stigma, which is the most prevalent under the shade of our ever-vigilant church.

Falling In Love With A New City

Falling In Love With A New City

Falling in love with a new city is very different than falling in love with a human being. Everything about the city excites you at first, as you explore it and learn the hot spots, the streets to avoid, the best places to eat and socialize. The cities cannot speak...

Georgian Dance – The Eternal Celebration

Georgian Dance – The Eternal Celebration

The roots of the art form are lost in the depths of millennia. Its history is the endless strive for perfection. Dance is a specific form of spiritual culture that reflects reality in artistic images. Georgian choreography is based on reality, reflecting much of the social and aesthetic experience of our ancestors, but at the same time, its spirit is unreal. The symbolic nature of expressive means of every artistic image is loaded with meaning and used to communicate ideas through symbolic allusions of various components.

Politicians We Deserve

Politicians We Deserve

Politicians. Everybody says they suck. Well, where do people think these politicians come from? They don’t fall out of the sky. They don’t pass through a membrane from another reality. They come from Georgian families, Georgian schools, Georgian churches, Georgian businesses and Georgian universities, and they are elected by Georgian citizens. These politicians are the best we can do folks. It’s what our system produces: Garbage in, garbage out.

The Making of Georgia

The Making of Georgia

The 70s of the X century is one of the most important stages in the history of Georgia, which throughout its long existence has always had the tendency towards unification, accompanied by the nonetheless weaker separatist soul.

Tbilisi – The Way I See It

Tbilisi – The Way I See It

By Filmmaker Giorgi Tavartkiladze   Tbilisi - the city I was born and raised, is stuck in my earliest memory as a post-civil-war, ruined, poor and grey space. But in spite of this, I still fell in love with her. Today, some people in Georgia say "Tbilisi meant...

The Walls Have Ears “Shh! Shh! No one should hear us!” – a phrase from the film “Keto and Kote” (comic Opera by Victor Dolidze; premiered in Tbilisi in 1919) This is not a story about walls, nor ears. This is a story about an old Tbilisian Yard, in which I spent my...

The Intimate Terrorism

The Intimate Terrorism

For millions of women, children, and men, all over the world, home is not a safe place and the only memories that are formed in it are painful ones.

Losing Our Past

Losing Our Past

What happens when we destroy the past? We lose our memory and when we lose it, we lose ourselves, because there is no “us” without memories. With cities, it is the same. Historical urban areas are the memory of a city, while the buildings serve as records. The...
