Local Cultural Policies Handbook – Steps, Tools and Case studies
Previously only available in Turkish (Istanbul Bilgi University Press, 2011), this publication pulls together new methodological tools and diverse practical experiences from civic participation in local cultural policy development from across Turkey.
With contributions by renowned experts, and edited by Eylem Ertürk from Anadolu Kültü, it is based on knowledge and field experiences from the ECF, Anadolu Kültür and Cultural Policies and Management Research Center (KPY) at Istanbul Bilgi University.
These were gathered from the project Invisible Cities: Building Capacities for Local Cultural Policy Transformation in Turkey.
The project supported three long-term strategic cultural development processes in the cities of Kars, Antakya and Çanakkale and was made possible through the assistance of the Matra Program of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
It was delivered through ECF’s European Neighbourhood programme.
