Netherlands Institute in Turkey (Hollanda Araştırma Enstitüsü - NIT)

Tarih : 20-09-2019 18:30 - 20-09-2019 20:30

"No Seat At The Table", awarded by Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie and supported by the NIT, is a graphic novel project dealing with one of the most poignant problems of our current cities. The project involves the collection and illustration of human stories regarding residential displacement in the course of urban transformation in Amsterdam, Utrecht, Istanbul, and Ankara. Through creating connections in these cities and producing a graphic novel on common social problems, the project aims at contributing to the public conversation and inter-cultural dialogue on the issues of urban inequality, inclusivity, and livability in Turkey and the Netherlands.

The public talk, which is the third of the Meetings on Diversity and the Livable City that the NIT co-organizes with the Netherlands Consulate General in Istanbul, will include presentations by Minem Sezgin (project coordinator) and Rajab Eryiğit (illustrator of the Istanbul section) discussing the outlines of the project and its outcomes so far.

The event language will be English and Turkish.
