In Turkey, culture and arts professionals operate in a context defined by a diverse range of actors: from public policies to local actions led by municipalities, privately funded institutions, independent artist-led initiatives or cultural and creative industries, to the role of foreign institutions, the cultural landscape in the country is extremely broad. Therefore, the shaping of cultural policies and practices takes various forms, from local to national levels depending on the connections that are possible to build on a given territory. How, in the context of Turkey at large, are cultural practices constructed and implemented? How do interactions between various actors involved form and reform it? What are the effects of those activities, sometimes devised and construed together in collaboration, sometimes made up of by individual efforts?

The Future Is Now: Constructing and Reconstructing Cultural Practices in Turkey aims to address these questions with the involvement of leading as well as emerging culture and arts operators in Turkey. Featuring exemplary projects supported by Spaces of Culture in Izmir, Diyarbakır, Gaziantep and beyond, we will meditate on perspectives and experiences of cultural actors to facilitate an inspiring discussion with a focus on the contemporary issues of urban transformation, heritage and access to arts and culture in local and global contexts.

Through a calibration of creative meeting methods and thought-provoking discussions, showcasing exemplary artworks and talks and working sessions, the program aims to provide a free space for the actors to exchange knowledge and experiences.

Cultural Encounters: Re-Thinking Spaces
17 - 18 December  2018

By supporting a diverse range of initiatives and projects in Gaziantep, İzmir and Diyarbakır, Spaces of Culture is a unique program that underlines and encourages more space for cultural activities to spread around Turkey. The diversity of supported projects (festivals, workshops, exhibitions, films, performances, trainings or talks) illustrates the dynamism of a vibrant civil society that brings people together in the context of arts and culture and creates valuable interactions between engaged communities.

In the context of ongoing social and political transformations, arts and cultural initiatives are a priority as they present opportunities for exchange, experimentation, innovative research and creativity. This contributes to developing meaningful social cohesion, better understanding and create new ways of including diverse communities. 

With this context in mind, “Re-thinking Spaces” examines the notion of “Space” itself: what are the “spaces” we need to work towards more inclusivity, diversity and creativity? Who are the change-makers and the actors of transformation? How do we engage our communities? How do we foster communication and exchange among the diversity of actors, peers and projects to encourage emulation and creativity?

“Re-thinking Spaces” is conceived as an opportunity to look at practices and questions that can allow us to create opportunities, open shared places and offer a sense of belonging in a globally challenging time for spaces of culture.
