In this workshop, inspired by the multi-layered structure of the Istanbuls Today exhibition, which brings together contemporary visual narratives from different Istanbuls, the participants set out from photographs selected from the exhibition and construct the story of a city through various creative writing techniques. Participants build a story through three visuals/objects that inspire the introduction-body-conclusion components. Then, they become a part of this collective narrative by collaborating on the storylines together.
