Art Villa Garikula, a Georgian countryside hub for local and visiting artists, is being renovated to regain its trademark sight and preserve its status as a site of cultural importance.

Located 60km north-west of capital Tbilisi, the 19th century venue is the residence of an art commune and hosts the annual Fest I Nova contemporary art festival.

It is now subject of a newly launched initiative involving support from the National Agency for Cultural Heritage Preservation of Georgia.
