1 Billion Rising Events

One Billion rising – ერთი მილიარდი ხმა

Georgia > 4600 Kutaisi > White Bridge > 2014-02-14 > 03:00 pm

About The Event

The youth of Kutaisi is rising at the central square of the city to set a sign against domestic violence and sexual discrimination! We dance both Georgian dances as well as the OBR dance and try to make this a creative art gathering. A forum theatre will be opening the event and we plan to invite person's to tell their own empowering stories, as people's tolerance, understanding and sympathy for victims of (domestic,) sexual violence and discrimination is very low and we hope to raise awareness that people have equal rights and that discrimation and violence violates those rights!

We also provide psychological and juristic consultation for our benefeciaries who are ever so often victims of domestic violence.
