The proposed project will support raising awareness about the cities where Armenians and Turks used to live together in the past, such as Istanbul, Kars, Diyarbakir, etc. through online publications of articles and essays on the practices of sharing common urban space. Materials developed within the project will also help to unfold new insights, open new perspectives on the practices of negotiation of cultural, historical and political differences and contribute to Armenia-Turkey normalisation process.
Upon the completion of project, most of the published (online) essays and articles will be collected, translated from Armenian/Turkish to English and compiled into a single book publication.
Eurasia Partnership Foundation (EPF) in collaboration with TOG (Community Volunteers Foundation, Turkey) organised an exchange visit of Armenia-based youth workers and volunteers to Istanbul, Izmit and Eskişehir on July 18-23, 2017 implemented as a part of EPF’s YouthBank activity within the framework of programme Support to the Armenia-Turkey Normalisation Process, funded by the European Union.
