Meeting with Asli Erdoğan

As part of the Interkulturalia Festival, we would like to invite you to a meeting with Asli Erdoğan, Turkish writer, journalist and tireless human rights activist, on the 18th of October at 5:00 pm at Spółdzielnia “Ogniwo” in Krakow.

In her books and articles, Asli takes on such subjects as state-inflicted violence, discrimination and human rights violations, as well as women’s rights. In her books and articles, she takes on subjects such as state-sanctioned violence, discrimination and human rights violations. She has been a freedom activist since 1993, as a result of which she has been persecuted, fired multiple times and has spent over a dozen years in exile. Since July 2015, Asli has lived in Krakow as part of an ICORN network scholarship.

The conversation with Asli about her stay in Krakow, her experiences as a migrant and exile (both the pleasant and unpleasant), as well as her idea of home, roots and nation, will be led by Konrad Pędziwiatr.

The ICORN International Cities of Refuge Network Programme in Krakow is organised by the City of Krakow, the Krakow Festival Office and the Villa Decius Association, which carries out the scholarship program and provides a place to work.

The meeting is organised by the Interkulturalni Association, the Krakow Festival Office and the Villa Decius Association.
