A playground and outdoor community space in the small town of Bolnisi in Georgia that was opened in 2017 combines the best aspects of art, craftsmanship, vocational training and volunteer work. Artist Joerg Schulze worked with unemployed youths to create a colorful wooden structure for the space. During the project, they learned woodworking basics, machine handling and the value of teamwork. With the “Friendly Monsters” project, the Eberhard-Schöck-Stiftung was able to help support these youths during a difficult phase of their lives. The project was carried out to celebrate the German-Georgian Year of Friendship in cooperation with the German Embassy in Tbilisi and the municipal administration of Bolnisi.
