Dear Friends,

 We would like to invite you to attend a creative project, dedicated to one of the remarkable personalities of XX century Giorgi Gurdjieff – “Gurdjieff and Contemporary Culture”, which include scientific conference, workshops and performances.

The project is the initiative of Stichting Caucasus Foundation (SCF)  and Fico Ballet together with international partners (ITI Georgian Centre), (SCF in past was organizer of international conference and publication in 2007 “Gurdjieff in Tiflis”).

Project is aimed during the conference to show relation of contemporary arts forms and Gurdjieff, will be shown two performances and organized several workshops.

Why Batumi?

Because it was last city in Georgia (Caucasus) from where Gurdjieff departed to Europe through Constantinople.

You could take part as participant, speaker or observer – number of participants is limited.

Deadline for request is 10th of August.
