WHAT IS SHLOMO?
Taking its name from ‘Shlomo’ which means ‘hello’ in Syriac, the project organizes design workshops by combining art-based research methods with digital design tools.
The Shlomo project is supported by the Spaces of Culture grant programme of the Goethe Institut - Istanbul.
With the skills taught in the workshop, I feel attached to digital art, which will contribute to my career.
Imagine being able to remotely access to the places once your family lived.
Fantastic environment to get inspired for the dissemination of rich cultural assets.
"There are so many "Spaces of Culture" to create!"
