Istituto cultura italiana (NGO)
Non-profit organization operating in the linguistic and literary field, active in Tbilisi, Georgia
Istituto cultura italiana (NGO) is a non-profit organization operating in the linguistic and literary field, active in Tbilisi (Georgia). It has two complementary aims, that is promotion of Italian culture and language in Georgia, with an inclusive and democratic orientation, and of Georgian culture at abroad, and specifically in Italy and other European countries.
Our main activities range from “social inclusion”, where we mean to valorize the local Georgian community and local actors around us (either artists, professionals, people with fewer opportunities, local institutions, etc.), intercultural exchange, where Italian or European culture is not simply disseminated in a one-way approach during our activities, but proposed in a dialogic manner and as a way to primarily benefit the subjects who are related to us, “social innovation”, meant as a way to produce a positive impact on the surrounding society primarily in the fields of civil society, environment, democracy, which in turn pushes us to revise our own cultural (European) roots, in the view of a society more egalitarian and attentive to weak categories, and finally to “media-literacy”.
