The Workshops on Urban Memory Walks series, that the NIT organizes in collaboration with the Netherlands Consulate General in Istanbul, continues with an event on December 12. The workshop will give stage to urban tour initiatives that uncover the multicultural past and present of cities, and the effects of social and economic transformations on the urban landscape and its inhabitants. The meeting will also bring to light the uses of multiple approaches and techniques in urban walks such as performance, visual art, digital technologies, and academic perspectives.

The workshop will include the Dutch theatre group Adelheid+Zina’s wijksafari project, Hrant Dink Foundation’s multicultural memory tour guide application KarDes, and MAD/ Beyond Istanbul’s tours exploring the architectural heritage and the effects of urban transformation in Istanbul’s different parts.

The workshop will be held online on December 12, Saturday, starting at 5 pm (Istanbul time)/ 3 pm (Amsterdam time). For getting registered, please fill out the form.
