VAHA Hubs get underway

VAHA programme builds on already active cultural spaces and initiatives that function as veritable oases ("vaha" in Turkish) for public discussion and dialogue in Turkey and beyond.

Alongside the invited teams from seven cities of Turkey, our open call to the neighbouring regions received 45 applications from 26 countries, and the hubs to take part in the programme are selected.
