Project: Rewriting Our Narrative
Grant/Date: 2018 Globe Grant Recipient, Findlay Market
Featured in: Citybeat
Bio: Melissa Aydogan is a first generation Turkish-American working to be a positive voice for a lost generation of Middle-Easterners marginalized by the media. A Cincinnati native, Melissa received her degree in Business Administration from Boston University and currently works as an account manager at Procter and Gamble.
Project: Rewriting our Narrative reimagines the Globe as a Turkish teahouse. In Turkey teahouses act as the hubs of social activity. Cozy ground seating, traditional Turkish lanterns and rugs, lively music, stimulating conversation over sweets, and games played among various groups create an intimate community feel in the Findlay Market space, from students to business folk, retirees to refugees.
