CAUCULT connects cultural actors from different regions in Armenia, Georgia and Azerbaijan.
CAUCULT is an international, intercultural project promoting local culture-related initiatives that support ethnic, religious and cultural diversity across the South Caucasus. The unique cultural diversity was the strength of the Caucasus region throughout its history and resulted in an amazingly wide range of cultural expressions. Wars and conflicts of the past decades cast a shadow on the beauty and strength of this unique feature of the Caucasus. The aim of CAUCULT is to re- discover the cultural diversity in the Caucasus as a key to a creative, progressive and prosperous development of the region. Communities in Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia are activated and empowered through art events. Furthermore, these activities encourage a mutual and vivid dialogue between various stakeholders representing different cultural backgrounds.
