As part of the cultural policy studies led by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV), a workshop on "Co-designing Public Engagement in the Arts" took place at ATÖLYE over two days. Throughout this workshop, experienced representatives from different institutions discussed the points raised in İKSV's recent "Public Engagement in the Arts" report in various panels, and evaluated global trends. Participants examined case studies and best practices, and developed strategies to remove barriers that hinder participation in the culture and arts.
