Tea with Strangers
There's nothing better than a cup of tea with a stranger!
I'm addicted to tea! I'm addicted to strangers!
The idea behind the project is simple.
We take our tea sets, go sit in public places of Yerevan (parks, squares, streets, etc.), prepare tea according to Chinese traditions, and invite complete strangers to join us for cup of tea! We introduce the tea, ourselves, they introduce themselves. We share our stories, they share theirs. We take photos. People leave, we'll probably never see them again. They continue their way, we stay and greet new strangers. Same-same, but different. Different stories, different lives.
The best parts of the conversations and photographs will be posted on a Facebook page, people can follow the stories of humans of Yerevan.
Not only Yerevan. We'll also travel to other cities of Armenia and Artsakh.
Our aim to erase any borders between people who may seem to be strangers to each other, but we're all water from different rivers after all.
