Spread across the city of Istanbul, New Civic Rituals are interventions that rehearse new kinds of encounters, hosted by specific community groups and sites. From communal cooking to gardens and playgrounds, these projects have a restorative function, providing experiences of being together, reconnecting, and caring for the city and its multiple inhabitants. They generate encounters across scales and bodies, amongst people but also birds, stars, plants and microbes.

New Civic Rituals are scattered around Istanbul and will feature activations on varying dates until May 2021.
