Furthermore, Istanbul based creatives whose art is politically charged and who fear persecution are invited to the festival. Questions about place, homeland and identity are the focal point and issues of queer communities and women’s rights will be particularly emphasized. Within the framework of the festival discussions, a children’s concert, a reading, two workshops as well as a club night in neighboring Kater Blau will take place.
