Georgia’s Fantastic Tavern: Where Europe Meets Asia is a virtual festival of Georgian writers from the Caucasus, inspired by the vibrant café culture of the first democratic republic of 1918-21. The four-day festival, livestreamed for a global English-Language audience, marked the centenary of Soviet invasion of Georgia and 30th anniversary of independence. It was presented by Artistic Director Maya Jaggi and the Writers’ House of Georgia in partnership with the British Library in London and Words without Borders in New York.
I handled the PR campaign for the festival which ran from 25-28 February 2021. Campaign highlights included coverage on The Guardian homepage and in The Calvert Journal.
