N-MAP took five days during our Caucuses trip last month to travel to Tbilisi, Georgia to work on do some additional related shooting for our Armenia work, and to begin shooting on new projects with Open Society Georgia Foundation grantees.
Tbilisi is a stunning city at the crossroads of the ancient Silk Road, and we were fortunate to be able to spend a day-and-a-half filming some beautiful old architecture use in a comparison piece about the destruction of historic buildings in Yerevan.
We also started work with several Georgian disability rights organizations funded by OSF-Georgia. Look for a new N-MAP video in the coming months supporting a campaign for improved accessibility and understanding for wheelchair-users. And, when we return to Tbilisi this summer, we hope to continue shooting with other Georgian organizations, including an early childhood education program focused on kids with autism.
