STGM Communication Z Report: What did we do in 2023?

As we conclude 2023, we began our year-end review with communication affairs and summarized our communication activities.

With the aim of contributing to the visibility of civil society activities in Turkey, we publish the work of civil society organizations on our website. Of the 605 pieces of content we published last year, 331 were related to the work of civil society organizations. If you want your announcements and news to be published on our website in the new year, you can send them to us at [email protected]

Every year, civil society organizations in Turkey working in different areas of rights produce various projects, conduct field research, and document their observations, experiences, and the results of their work in reports. Last year, civil society organizations continued to monitor, record, and report. Especially after the earthquake we experienced in February, CSOs produced a large number of documents, reports, and information notes. In 2023, we added 41 studies prepared by organizations in different topics to our e-library. Click here to view publications in the e-library.

While working to strengthen the capacities of CSOs in Turkey, we also strive to produce resources for the civil sector. Although we couldn't publish as many publications as we wanted in 2023, we produced 5 different documents. You can review STGM publications here.

Follow grant calls with us

To support the resource development efforts of CSOs, we regularly research and publish grant opportunities from around the world and Turkey for CSOs. In 2023, we announced 78 grants in different fields. We will continue this work in the new year. You can follow the current grant announcements ​​​here.

We actively used our studio

We conducted video works with CSOs in our video recording studio last year as well. Last year, 20 organizations applied to our studio. We conducted shootings with two of these organizations in the studio. We also recorded a podcast with one organization.

In 2023, we actively used our studio. We produced 15 video works for our meetings and trainings.

In November, before the Civil Voices Festival we organized in Izmir, we prepared 7 videos on accessibility, child safety, gender equality, and sustainability. Starting from the question, "How can an event be organized that prioritizes accessibility for everyone, prioritizes the safety and participation of children, focuses on gender equality, and takes into account all living things, in harmony with nature?" you can watch the videos we prepared from ​here.
