Project addresses the issue of migrants’ lives and integration challenges in Tbilisi. These are people who have come here within the past decade and decided to live in Tbilisi permanently or temporarily. However, cultural exchange and communication within “hosts” and “newcomers” about each others’ culture is very limited, hence, some stereotypes might prevail.

Migrants’ everyday and culinary stories will be collected together with involved young professionals from different fields (social sciences, humanities, arts).
