I was born, had studied and been working in Izmir. I actively take initiative in creating some of the city's most important cultural and artistic activities to make a difference. In 2010 as a group of young citizens, we started a movement to realize even bigger projects, and add something more to our city's social and cultural life. The movement resulted in an Animation Festival . One the most important features of the festival is that it is created and supported by the people of the city for the people of the city. A purely civil effort, with zero budget.
