Hi there, here to learn more about the industry, get to know like minded creatives and share knowledge and experience!
I'm from Turkey but have been living in the Netherlands for 9 years by now. My journey began with (co-)initiating and leading socially engaged artistic cultural projects, and from there, I gradually have been shifting to self-taught storytelling since 2016. My most recent work is a graphic novel, No Seat At The Table, about gentrification and housing crisis in the Netherlands and Turkey. The book is published by Jap Sam Books and currently is available internationally. I created the concept, did the fundraising, curated four illustrators with whom I've done extensive research and created the stories. (Adding the link below for those that are interested)
Currently I'm working on two sci-fi stories (one feature and one short).
I also am working on a dramedy feature about an aspiring comedian. For writing this story (and mainly the stand-up sets) authentically, I've actually started doing open mics a year ago.
