Retrospective – Expat Spotlight #2: Writing

In collaboration with ATÖLYE, Yabangee is excited to present our second Expat Spotlight, a new monthly series showcasing the freshest, most inspiring contributions being made by Istanbul’s diverse international community to the city’s cultural, sporting, humanitarian, and business spheres. An opportunity to share moving stories, reflect on personal experiences and participate in a resourceful dialogue, we invite foreigners and locals alike to come and embolden others.

Taking place in English, our second Expat Spotlight is set for Tuesday 21 March, centering on the theme of “writing”. Doors are set to open at 19:00, with the proceedings begin at 19:30. Entry is free for all attendees and no RSVP is necessary. Security is present at the entrance.
