Circuit Istanbul is an arts and culture space in Kadıköy's colorful Yeldeğirmeni neighborhood that connects people through gatherings, exhibitions and creative workshops. Founded and run in part by expats, their programs focus on mindful living, environmentalism and sustainable creativity. In addition to hosting regular yoga sessions and a variety of art-related and movement workshops, they also organize a Ye-şil-len-dir-e-lim program, which is a workshop series focused on building relationships with each other and with our environments. The workshops are facilitated by Circuit and funded through U.K.-based Creative Climate Leadership http://creativeclimateleadership.com/ program and provide an opportunity for people to come together, share their experiences about living in the city, and work together to expand Istanbul's green community.
On Saturday, Oct. 21 they will host the fourth in their series of Ye-şil-len-dir-e-lim, an evening of food, company, and creative discussion about our human nature connection. The event will take place from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and participants are advised to arrive on time as they are planning a special opening activity!
While doors open at 5 p.m., there will be a special activity entitled "Meet Your Neighbor and Your Nature" that will take place between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. This social activity will give participants the chance to get to know their fellow attendees. "Prompted by a series of questions, you will share city life experiences with friends and strangers. It is an opportunity to listen and to be heard about how it feels to live in the megacity of Istanbul and how we might support one another in building greener and more mindful communities."
From 8 p.m. onwards there will be a Tupperware Dinner with music and more. The dinner will be potluck style, meaning everyone is invited to bring some food or a dish to share. For Circuit Istanbul, avoiding unnecessary disposables, in other words using sustainable or reusable packaging, has always been an aim they achieve to strive to, so keep that in mind. In other words, don't bring single-use packaging unless it is recyclable.
On the following weekend of Nov. 4 to 5, Circuit Istanbul will also be hosting an autumn bazaar with sustainably-minded brands by designers from Istanbul. Held from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, this is a great opportunity to check out sustainably creative products, while enjoying tasty food and a festive atmosphere. Both events are free and will take place at Circuit Istanbul, located on Uzun Hafız Sokak No: 39 in Kadıköy's mural-laden Yeldeğirmeni neighborhood, which if you haven't visited recently is definitely worth checking out in itself.
