Batumi Backyard Stories is a project based on participation that involves the creative collaboration of Georgian and international artists in selected backyards and streets of the old Batumi. The necessary condition of the project is a creative interaction with the yards’ residents to reveal their cultural heritage, personal stories and everyday life - showing the urban and social dynamics of the city. The works created during the project significantly change how residents experience the yards by revealing the unknown stories, cultural, historical and existential peculiarities of each backyard.
