HubME2 - Mersin Edge Effect
The hub wants to develop the edge effect that the team already enjoys and offers with enlarging their networks on three different scales. Mersin Yabanları (Garden of Mersin Wilds) developed their local food and compost community by introducing new instruments of collecting and composting while D5 reached out to national partners by study visits and collective activities to new partners and towards new domains. Finally, Kültürhane enriched its international contacts and collaborations to offer insights and projects from beyond Turkey by offering new online content produced in cooperation with other VAHA peers and other international partners. Therefore, in the first phase, the hub developed the local ecological community, national network of arts and international cultural exchanges.
Composting for Peace
The joint project aims to develop mechanisms that help to generate learnings for the future of the ideas and intentions behind VAHA, which can be summarized as establishing new zones that could help arts, culture and civil society to grow in disadvantageous places and zones. Composting for Peace aims for creating opportunities, while rendering its base as a sustainable and prolonging utility for further activities.
