Seminar: Local Cultural Policies 

Speaker: Özlem Ece

Time: 6:00-7:30 pm

As part of the "Curating Contemporary Art" Seminar Program, Özlem Ece, the Director of Cultural Policy Studies at İstanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV), will host a seminar titled “Local Cultural Policies in Turkey” on March 7, 2024, based on the topic of the cultural policy report published by İKSV in February.

Local governments are significant participants in creating cultural policies both globally and in Turkey today. This situation places significant responsibilities on local governments and non-governmental organisations in the cultural field, while also enabling a strong collaboration  and dialogue environment with the citizens of the cities they serve. However, despite their capacity to understand the sociocultural characteristics of the places they govern, local governments seem to lack sufficient financial and structural resources for adequate dialogue and collaboration. There is a critical requirement for local actors to design cultural policies in Turkey based on the needs of different cities and regions.

This seminar, titled “Local Cultural Policies” aims to open a discussion that will enable the collaborative design of local cultural policies with a long-term perspective. The session will discuss enhancing diversity, equality, and inclusivity in Turkey's local cultural ecosystem, as well as obstacles, opportunities, and challenges encountered in developing cultural policies, based on research conducted within the scope of İKSV's cultural policy research. Furthermore, aiming to consider the meanings attributed to culture by citizens, a dialogue is targeted towards the more effective and inclusive development of local cultural policies.
