An absolutely independent art production space, collective, and meeting point.
Just as the historical caravanserais hosted camel caravans along the Silk Road, we host creative people--with or without camels--from around the globe for production, experimentation, collaboration, and inspiration.
As artists ourselves, we concentrate on facilitating art production, workshops, dinner parties, public and private events, and artist-in-residence programs. Our building buzzes with Anne practicing, building, and teaching circus classes, Julie making ? in her studio, friends stopping by to enjoy the magnificent view from the terrace, or artists-in-residence collaborating in the shared production space.
Visual artists, filmmakers, musicians, scientists, circus performers, architects, choreographers, curators, writers, artisans, urban theorists and all manner of creative people take advantage of our ability to navigate the world of art production in Istanbul by taking part in our residency programs.
Caravansarai is an artist-run business adventure creating a vibrant oasis of ideas and energies-- carrying the productive hum of the historical bazaar into contemporary arts practice.
