Participants aged between 20 and 30 are expected to apply for the second term of the project, which aims to discuss current memory studies and struggles in the world and Turkey with the younger generation and to produce genuine memorial works with them.
The project invites its participants to seek creative expression forms of social memory together in an environment where critical and free ideas are suppressed. This invitation; focuses on the reflections of the suppressed and silenced past about different places, times, and communities to the present, the traces left by the next generations, and different ways of being remembered.
Travel, accommodation, and food expenses will be covered for all activities organized within the scope of the project, and research scholarships will be given to the participants to support the projects they will produce.
The project, which will last for 18 months, will take place between June 2022 and December 2023. During this period, five face-to-face workshops and two field visits are planned. The memorialization projects to be produced by the participants are expected to be completed by the end of October 2023.

Participants are expected to allocate the necessary energy and time to produce their projects and to actively participate in the collective idea generation process during the workshops organized within the scope of this long-term program spanning 18 months.
