FIRAT BİNGÖL SKYGD/ Development of Social and Cultural Life Association (Istanbul-Diyarbakir/Turkey)
AHMET SİNOPLU Jfc Medienzentrum (Cologne/Germany)  

The project Aynen/Einen organized hip-hop workshops comprised of music, dance and street arts in Istanbul, Diyarbakır, Batman, and Mardin through August 1-9, 2014. The project was realized in collaboration of Development of Social and Cultural Life Association (SKYGD) in Turkey, which aims to support the social and cultural life with the workshops they organize in the field of art, and jfc Medienzentrum in Germany, which gives trainings to children, young people and families in the field of media and culture. Workshops were carried out by the trainer and project coordinator Ahmet Sinoplu (jfc Medienzentrum) and artist and art trainer Fırat Bingöl (SKYGD). Amin Saleh, the founding member of the youth project “UrbanCulturBridge” in Germany, and musician Demir Kerem Atay were also among the instructors of the project. Project assistant was Hüseyin Korkma.


Aynen/Einen project focused on hip-hop culture, which represents a lifestyle and is recognized as a form of expression by the young people in Germany and Turkey like all across the world. During the workshops featuring creative studies such as rap lyric writing and dance classes, the participants had the opportunity to meet with examples of hip-hop from Germany and participate in jam sessions. Workshop studies shaped around the subjects of “discrimination and violence” opened up for discussion the needs and focal points of the young people living inside the hip-hop culture. The young people who actively participated in the workshops had the opportunity to express themselves both visually and acoustically and made a critical assessment of this culture.

A short documentary, a booklet and an album compiled from the workshop activities were prepared at the end of the project.
