With the help of Tbilisi City Hall, Art Area has been organizing the project “Tbilisi Yards”. “Tbilisi Yards” involve exploring Tbilisi streets, its history and
residents. Streets host different kinds of musical performances and literature reading. Georgians along with tourists have a possibility to share Georgian culture not only through the TV channel but by simply walking in Tbilisi streets.
