Meeting Point: Büyükhüsun /// General Info
Meeting Point: Büyükhüsun is the second time that Meeting Point project comes alive. The concept of this edition is 'recycling'. We will be looking into the inherent ability of the villagers in recycling anything available in their vicinity, and their act of transforming materials into their everyday needs. We shall delve into the concept of recycling, attempting to remind ourselves about the values of our ancestors, hoping to find clues about a life lived in balance with nature, and interpret these via contemporary and artistic interventions.
The Meeting Point: Büyükhüsun has four hands-on workshops on art, design, performance and local cuisine. Different from Meeting Point: Gülpınar* (2007), this year the project aims to bring international and national participants with the interested villagers together in the workshops. The courses will become another platform of interaction just as much as the festival events.
