“Friendly Monsters” in Georgia – A colorful new playground and outdoor community space opens in Bolnisi, Georgia
14 July, 2017:
A newly opened playground and outdoor community space in the city of Bolnisi in Georgia combines the best aspects of art, craftsmanship, vocational training and volunteer work. Here, Joerg Schulze worked with unemployed youth to create a wooden structure that benefits the local community. Most of the design and construction work was done by the adolescents. During the project, they learned woodworking basics, machine handling and the value of teamwork. The Eberhard-Schöck-Stiftung initiated the project to support these young people during a difficult phase of their lives in the context of the year of Georgian-German friendship. This project is supported by the German Embassy Tbilisi and the city of Bolnisi.
