We are back with more Spaces of Culture!

We are delighted to announce today that we are back with Spaces of Culture. In these challenging times due to the Covid-19 outbreak, over the last weeks, the grantees have been developing new methodologies and have enhanced their projects for a safer implementation and broader outreach.

In 2020, the 38 selected projects among 350 applications that we received from İzmir, Diyarbakır, and Gaziantep are going make the most of online and offline platforms to fulfill the Spaces of Culture criteria of creativity, sustainability, effectivity, and contribution to the cultural scene with their extended digitalized scopes and innovative ideas.

We wish the best of luck and congratulations to the 38 projects that will receive our support this year in the field of cinema, music, contemporary art, performance, dance, visual arts, cultural heritage, literature, and theater!
