Four well-established and active cultural institutions in Turkey have joined forces to create a multi-national and multi-disciplinary project. The ‘Be Mobile – Create Together!’ project is the joint endeavour of the Instituthet Français de Turquie, the cultural section of the Embassy of the Netherlands, Istanbul Foundation For Culture and Arts, and the Goethe Institute, and it will facilitate 16 artist residency programmes in France, Netherlands, Germany and Turkey,
Be Mobile – Create Together aims to strengthen the cultural and artistic exchange between Europe and Turkey, not only encouraging young talent, but also contributing to a sustainable connection between the Turkish and European art spheres. It will bring together a range of artists to work together through residencies and locations throughout Europe.
The Be Mobile – Create Together project will enable young, digital visual and performing artists and writers from Turkey and Europe to find opportunities to attend residency programmes. Throughout the period of July 2019 to May 2020, 26 artists will be enjoying residencies at art houses and studios in Paris, Cassis, and Issy-les-Moulineaux in France; Dresden, Berlin and Stuttgart in Germany; Amsterdam, Maastricht and Lahey in the Netherlands; and also İstanbul, Ayvalık, Bursa and Şirince in Turkey.
