The map has drawn the attention of people from Turkey and abroad. Sometimes users ask questions related to their locations and contribute to the map. The group that benefits the most from the map are researchers.
The Hrant Dink Foundation continues to work in light of the Turkey Cultural Heritage Map. With KarDes (multicultural mobile application) prepared in the framework of the Cultural Heritage Project, they aim to render visible Istanbul’s multilayered and multicultural fabric with memory tours. Inspired by previous works of the Foundation, the application enables its users to tour Istanbul’s old neighborhoods and discover the city’s cultural legacy inventory. Thanks to these tours supported by oral history interviews, users will have the opportunity to learn about a neighborhood through the voices of people who have lived there. Moreover, the application will also include the Istanbul inventory of the Turkey Cultural Heritage Map. Thus, users will also have access to the cultural heritage inventory of their locations.
The Foundation works in coordination with local municipalities and non-governmental organizations to disseminate the project. The content developed in this project is also shared with the local municipalities of cities where fieldwork was conducted.
