Capacity-Building Programme aims to provide artists, cultural initiatives and civil society organisations the educational support they need to further their skills in cultural management and civic engagement while offering a common ground necessary for dialogue and collaboration between these actors.

The programme will feature 12 distinct workshops on various aspects of arts and culture, all of which will be available to artists, cultural producers and civil society organisations from every corner of Turkey.

A training needs assessment will be conducted to determine the curriculum of the Capacity-Building Programme, and the training will be offered in the form of mentorship, conferences and webinars focused on covering the highlighted needs. With these events, the project aims to reach at least 180 people and institutions until its finish date.
