Það sem verður gert
Join me for a walk in the Little Syria enclave and learn the history of how this neighborhood has changed since the Syrian refugee crisis. See first-hand how Syrians are making their mark here, discuss its relevancy to the global migration debate, and experience their world (including food!) for a few hours. Depending on group interest you will: -Enjoy the best falafel and manakeesh in all of Istanbul -Discover local Syrian shops and goods -Be able to point out Syrian shops on your own, while understanding the long trade history between Syria and Turkey -Learn the difference between Turkish and Syrian coffee -Eat lunch at a restaurant straight out of Aleppo -Understand the legal, economic, housing, and social challenges facing the Syrian population -Participate in a question and answer session directly with a refugee (pending availability) Please note that this is an informal walk and not a tour. You are simply joining me for an outing in Little Syria.
I'm a Syrian-American with a Masters degree in Urban Planning and International Development, and a focus on migration. I first arrived in Istanbul in 2015 for a volunteer trip to teach and mentor Syrian refugee students. I simultaneously co-founded MaidenSyria.com, an organization supporting female refugees' self-empowerment Since then, I've stayed in Istanbul researching the integration of the Syrian population and the way it's changing the city's landscape, culture, food, and future. One of my favorite neighborhoods is Little Syria and I hope to make you just as passionate about it as I am! My co-host, Ahmad, is a Syrian refugee who arrived in Istanbul 5 years ago. Since then, he's lived in Fatih and watched it change over the years. He also works in the humanitarian field and hosts his own Airbnb cooking class.
