Nice to see all of those who came to the Supra recently. I think all, who attended will agree the evening was a big success.
Our caterers, Mangal Catering (https://www.mangalcatering.co.uk/), did us proud. It was the first time they cooked Geogian food and according to one of the Georgian guests, they nailed it!
Special thanks to The Lord Lieutenant of Bristol, Mrs Peaches Golding OBE and The Lord Mayor of Bristol Cllr Jos Clark, who were guests of Honour.
Also BIG THANKS to Borjghali, the Bristol Georgian Choir, who under the direction of Anthony Johnston, provided musical entertainment throughout the evening.
At this we event we announced our intention to organise a trip to Georgia 'Off the Beaten Track' for October 2020. More information about this trip will follow in due course.

The books celebrate 30 years of city twinning established by Paul Garland in 1988. Without the link I may never have discovered Georgia. Gaumajos! "

Art Exhibition "Unity in Diversity. Bristol & Tbilisi: 1988 -2018"

September 2018

by Nina Bendukidze 

Unity in Diversity POSTER A1editedIMG 6821editPOster Bristol1

The BTA planned several Georgian events in Bristol in 2018 to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of friendship between Bristol and Tbilisi.  One of them was an exchange exhibition "Unity in Diversity: Bristol & Tbilisi: 1988 - 2018” which focused on the historic content of the twinning between two cities. 

 

This project was about friendship, unity, diversity, art, history, international culture, place, people, humanity and partnership.  The aim of the event was to help establish new links and develop existing ones between people from two very different countries.  One theme of the exhibition was to demonstrate the commonality and diversity of British and Georgian traditional and modern visual art, including video installations and photography.  

The exhibition held in September 2018 at the same venue in Tbilisi - Tbilisi History Museum - Karvasla, where the British and Georgian young artists group “Silk Road” exhibition was held in 1994 and in October in the TBC Bank (the exhibition sponsor) headquarters.

Bristol’s City Hall welcomed the exhibition in December. The exhibition gave the BTA an opportunity to show the development of the cultural, educational and civic relationship between the two cities and most importantly between individuals from the beginning to the present day.

We would like to thank our sponsors  (Bristol-Tbilisi Association, TBC Bank and The Guild of Guardians Bristol)  for their generous financial support. We also would like to thank everybody who physically help us and made the exhibition happened.

Dr. Love participated in UpFests for third time, Lady Jday, who is currently living and working in New York, came to Bristol for second time and Stefan Hoch for first time.  The one hour session was facilitated by Richard Jones. Richard Jones runs Tangent Books, a Bristol publisher specialising in counter culture.

Georgian Literary Evening at Waterstones

May 2018

Two authors from Tbilisi came to Bristol to help launch the new "Book of Tbilisi" (Authors Zviad Kvaratskhelia and Bacho Kvirtia) as part of BTA 30th anniversary celebrations. The BTA was working with the Bristol Festival of Ideas to arrange an exciting and stimulating evening.

Where: FoI at Waterstones - Galleries, 11A Union Galleries, Broadmead, Bristol, BS1 3XD
When: 22nd May, 19:00

Zviad KvaratskheliaThe Book of Tbilisi coverIn the 26 years since Georgia declared independence from the Soviet Union, the country and its capital, Tbilisi, have endured unimaginable hardships: one coup d’état, two wars with Russia, the curse of organised crime, and prolonged periods of economic depression. Now the Tbilisi has begun to flourish again – drawing hordes of tourists with its eclectic architecture and famous welcoming spirit. Zviad Kvaratskhelia (pictured) and Bacho Kvirtia, two contributors to the short-story collection  The Book of Tbilisi,  offer snapshots of life in their city, reconciling its recent past with its glamourous present.
