What type of host are you?

One Caucasus Festival brings together musicians, artists, architects, educators and volunteers from all over the world who work directly with communities (especially youth) from Kvemo-Kartli. Region of Georgia where multiethnic groups coexist in peace for decades (Armenians, Azerbaijani, Greeks, Georgians).

What’s the mission of your community?

The aim is to create a safe space to foster meeting of representatives of the entire Caucasus region as well as the rest of the world. It is a place to use creativity and co-creation processes, build a common understanding between people from different backgrounds including those from conflicted countries. We put together a variety of people to deal with different tasks and this pushes the need for communication = dialogue. Every year we create 5 teams of volunteers to cover every aspect of the Festival and Program. For example, the Architecture & Construction Team needs to plan, design a multifunctional One Caucasus Town. Made out of stored wood and recycling materials “Not perfect town of our dreams” – functional, unique festival venue with no rented pavilions.

Volunteers do not only help but most of all work together with professionals and experts, learn by doing and contribute with their knowledge and experiences to actually make the festival happen. The same applies to participants (youth from local villages) who are not only an audience/students but also co-produce/co-create: films, performances, installations and other art pieces based on local heritage/legends, the potential of the region and their own.

Childen work with educators and volunteers with professional equipment and techniques during pre-festival days.

Every year we need around 50 volunteers to proceed with the festival and program.
**For 2020 due to pandemic there are 3 options we consider:
  • a) Meeting in Georgia/Tserakvi in August,
  • b) Meeting in Georgia/Tsrakvi in August + Organizing activities on-line
  • c) Organizing activities on-line (only)

We will adjust action with respect to the globally changing situation.

How many volunteers could you host?

Other (specify in the general info)

When would you need volunteers?

Depending on the pandemic. In Georgia – all August / On-line: From June till the end of the year (amount of time and period of work will depend on the Team)

How many hours of help per day?

Hours and time will depend on:

  • Final festival frame with respect to safety measures due to pandemic
  • Assigned team
  • Personal abilities
  • Main work is around 4-8 hours a day.
  • International Volunteer Program in Tserakvi starts in the beginning of August till the end of the month including the pre-festival program and main festival days. Approx. 3 weeks.

If the festival will be organized partly/fully on-line hours, days and amount of tasks will be discussed in advance and if needs adjustment will be rediscussed on the go.

Are accommodation and food included?

Yes, we offer food and accommodation

What type of accommodation can you provide?
  • Dormitory/shared rooms
  • Tent
  • Others (please, specify in general info)

If we meet in Tserakvi we have for our disposal local school which every year becomes our temporary home. Within the last 6 years, we tried to renovate it as much as possible as in the beginning it was very damaged. Now we have working toilets/showers/ electricity (only sometimes there are cuts) and we even built wooden beds (other years we all slept on the mattress directly on the floor). However, we also have tents! So you can either sleep in the school or in a tent.

Online volunteering

Online volunteers will not be provided with accommodation or food coverage.

Fees transparency
  • Volunteers must cover their own travel expenses.
  • There are no participation fees. If you are selected to become an OC Volunteer we are glad to have you on board and we will not charge you to attend our International Volunteers Program!
VISA – could you provide Visa support/info/invitation letters?

No! we cannot help with Visa/invitation letters – similar requests will be ignored.
