Soyer: “We have to digitize democracy”

Expressing that the Izmir Art project is a very important project for the cultural and artistic life of the city, Izmir Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Tunç Soyer said, “Culture and art are an obstacle to ignorance. An instrument that makes our living together enjoyable. Its deficiency deserts our lives, makes it barren, and impoverishes us. I want to share the democracy dimension of the business. Democracy is not just about going to the polls every five years. Democracy is the culture of living together, the law of living together, the beauty of living together. It is the greatest innovation humanity has found. What happened that the whole world is living under populist and authoritarian governments today? Is it a weakness of democracy? I don't think so. There is no weakness in the virtues and wealth of democracy. There is weakness in the tools used in the meeting of democracy with human communities. That's why we have to digitize democracy. We opened Visitİzmir, Turkey's first digital tourism encyclopedia. It brings together 2 points in İzmir, maps them and provides detailed information. It is interactive, you can add new points. It was a study that brought the tourism potential of İzmir to light. Very few in the world. İzmir Art is the digitization of the production of culture and art and the meeting of this production with people. All our desire; In order to breathe again in culture and arts in this barren, desertifying climate, we bring more people together with the producers of culture and arts and what they produce.”

Livaneli: "I'm glad there is Tunç Soyer"

Artist Zülfü Livaneli said, “Recently, I have been coming to İzmir frequently, they say 'why'. I say 'Tunç President is doing something, I'm coming'. A person who has a very important place in my spiritual protocol, cultural friend, progressive. I've been watching closely with support and fervor of his leadership, good things are happening. It is art that will bring people and countries closer together. Independent artists are struggling, struggling to survive. They need to open up space. This area can only be opened by administrators. Fortunately, there are municipalities like this in our big cities, it is good that Tunç Soyer and this municipality have a distinguished team. Together, we will do everything we can to crown the importance İzmir gives to art and culture.” Kadir Efe Oruç, Head of İzmir Metropolitan Municipality Department of Culture and Arts, who gave information about İzmir Art, said, “We care about bringing culture and art to every corner of İzmir and making contact with everyone. İzmir Art will make the cultural and artistic productions in the city more visible.”
