SKLAD (“Depot”) is one of the very few contemporary art initiatives in Abkhazia. It opened in autumn 2015 in Sukhum (Abkhazia’s capital) through the effort of local volunteers and artists. Its aim is to create a space devoted to artistic interventions, debates, screenings and workshops with the aim of fostering cultural and civic dialogue and sharing. In addition to collaborations with international artists, it provides a platform for local artists to develop and show their work.
SKLAD is run by a local group of artists, cultural managers and volunteers. It is financially supported by local businesses, private donations and Artas Foundation.
SKLAD’s site is currently under construction. You can follow its activities on its Facebook page.
