Those who want to better the world are at Civil Voices

The Civil Voices Festival set out to bring together those who want to better the world.

The festival brings together those who want to make the world a better place, with the notion that in order to heal, one must be strong, and in order to be strong, one must unite.

During the festival, there will be a range of healing experiences to learn from and be inspired by, including panels, exhibitions, stands, plays, performances, publications, and movies.

Those who want to beautify the world are at Civil Voices

The Civil Voices Festival set out to bring together those who want to beautify the world.

The event brings together those who desire to make the world a more beautiful place, knowing that true creativity comes from helping others become creative.

Our participating organizations' creative experiences will be shared with their audiences through activities such as talks, performances, exhibitions, and workshops.

Those who want to democratize the world are at Civil Voices

Civil Voices set out to bring together those who desire to see the world democratized.

Having a say in macro-level decisions or within the framework of the concerns we join together to improve will democratize the space, culture, and community in question.

Although it is not possible to deny the existence of negative examples in our country, there are also many examples that positively influence decision-making processes at both the central and local levels, and in some cases, become part of the decision. The Civil Voices Festival is designed as a platform for groups involved in the civil society's journey of transforming society, a platform where they can share their participatory experiences.
