Participant Profile

Eylem Ertürk


In her capacity as Project Development and Fundraising Coordinator at Anadolu Kültür, a non-profit arts and cultural organization in Istanbul, Ertürk focuses on programs that use artistic production in visual arts and multi-media to bolster cultural diversity, and broaden cultural rights, participation and dialogue. Her current program, BAK: Revealing the City through Memory, brings young people together around social issues to engage in creative, collective activities and allows them to pave a way for open discussion and mutual understanding.

Ertürk looked forward to opportunities for sharing her experience with colleagues in the US and to observing diverse practices of civil engagement via the visual arts.
