For this is the first residency, we chose a venue in Kuşadası, over the two weeks in November. Kuşadası is a town on Turkey’s Aegean coast, and the center of the seaside district of the same name within Aydın Province. Kuşadası is 95 km south of İzmir, and 71 km from Aydın. The municipality’s primary industry is tourism.
Kuşadası gets filled with tourist sunbathing over summer, but for the rest over the year it is very peaceful town, which makes it a perfect choice for retreat for artists while doing research, discussions and project planning.
