Describe the main features of the measure/initiative:
The Space for Culture project, in addition to providing space, venue, and resources for cultural projects in the field of visual arts and performing arts, offers different training and development opportunities to local institutions and professionals who produce in the field of art and conducts joint studies with partners from the cultural world in Turkey and Europe and develops comprehensive programs in the project regions. While creative dialogue between Europe and Turkey often focuses on big cities such as Istanbul and Ankara, aiming to encourage cultural activities outside these cities, Alan for Culture cooperates with artists and cultural actors in İzmir, Diyarbakır, and Gaziantep as well as civil society organizations. These cultural gatherings and sharings increase the dialogue between people from different social backgrounds. The Space for Culture encourages the production and cooperation of initiatives that strive to create sustainable structures within national and international networks to support the local cultural environment and civil society in the project regions.
