Tarlabaşı Community Center has been active since 2006 in Tarlabaşı, Istanbul, initially established as a project under the European Commission “European Initiative for Democracy and Human Rights Micro Project Program” by Istanbul Bilgi University Center for Migration Research. This work aims at depicting a picture of Tarlabaşı, the foundation and activities of the Community Center through the eyes of all participants and contributors. There are articles and contributions in the book by the professional staff of the Community Center –such as the coordinator, social worker, psychologist, art trainer- as well as by the volunteers –the main driving force of the activities-, and by the participant children and women, who are the real owners of the Center. In presenting an alternative perspective for the elimination of poverty and for integration into urban life, and in increasing the number of similar examples, sharing the experiences on the Tarlabaşı Community Center is important.
