Second Social Inclusion Workshop

The Social Inclusion Lab Project (SOIL), funded by the Swedish Institute, is a collaboration between Trans Europe Halles (a network of 130+ cultural centers across Europe), Izolyatsia and Her Yerde Sanat Derneği (Sirkhane) from Turkey. SOIL project aims at reducing inequalities, empowering European cultural centers to improve their work with social inclusion & contribute to relevant Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Our second workshop for the Social Inclusion Lab (SOIL) took place Aug16-17 in the beautiful city of Mardin, on the borders between Syria and Turkey. It was a success with a significant participation of the civil society organisations and artists belonging to underrepresented communities.
