As the ongoing pandemic continues to affect physical artistic and cultural activities worldwide, project partners of ‘Spaces of Culture’ are also facing the challenge of creating visibility, e.g. by organizing exhibitions for presenting project results during the last two years. When the pandemic began in 2020, Spaces of Culture reconsidered its Showcase Program, in which selected project results from each project city were curated in the other cities in the “Spaces of Culture” network as a final event of the year, and reformed it as a series of video portraits of project partners of the year. As a continuation of this new approach, the 41 partners of 2021 are also represented in a short video portrayal, featuring interviews on their work and their project’s connection to Spaces of Culture 2021.
These portrait videos allow the in-depth presentation of the projects while promoting the visibility of the artistic and cultural production in the cities by making the videos public and reachable on Spaces of Culture’s YouTube channel. The production of the videos was realized with the kind support of the Consulate General of the Netherlands in Istanbul.
