'The BlogShop’ 9 November 20:00, location: Goethe institute Sandukeli Str. 16.
During the Art Caucasus there has been lot of talks about networks, art off course, idea's about what kind of art projects Tbilisi needs, about the lack of a critical discourse in Tbilisi and many more related subjects.
A lot of these talks took place in kitchens or in restaurants etc. and usually in small groups of people. There was a lot of engagement in these conversations and good idea's being articulated. A subject that often came up is the a lack for a platform where this engagement and the idea's can be shared and several foreign visitors said: 'there is so little information to be found on the internet about the Georgian art scene'.
Together with the French art lover and professional website and blog user Audrey Bartis we have discussed the possibility of making a network of blogs connecting the Tbilisi/Georgian art scene and make it visible on the internet.
What is a blog?
A blog is a free place on the internet that anyone can crate and fill with images and text about whatever he or she wants to show on the internet. A lot of people use it as an alternative for a website because it’s for free and very easy to make, keep updated and link yourself to others that share your interests.
The 9th of November we organise a BlogShop in which we will show how a blog functions, how you can make one and how a group of blogs linked together can make the Georgian art scene more visible on the internet and contribute to the strengthening of a local and national network.
Hope to see you there.
