Art Anywhere Association

Art Anywhere Association was founded in 2012 by Pınar Demiral and her friends that firstly initiated a one-time festival in Mardin. Sirkhane Social Circus and Art School within the Association provides a life space which brings together Turkish and refugee children where the only common language is art.

Trainers of Sirkhane use social circus as a pedagogical tool. With the trainings they provide, they help children with less opportunities to overcome negative effects of war and to develop their imagination. There are a wide range of training opportunities in Sirkhane from juggling, acrobatics and stilt to painting and photography.

Young people that are trained in Sirkhane become Circus Heroes and start guiding new trainees called Circus Habibi. To date, Art Anywhere Association touched the lives of 300 thousand children with trainings and festivals.

Art Anywhere Association enabled children to come together in a place free from discrimination through art. It helped them to improve their self-confidence with physical and mental activities. It created an unforgettable difference both in their future and their imaginary world.
