Drop Earrings Not Bombs
DENB is the creation of two groups of people coming together. A group of individuals who met volunteering on Samos island in Greece in the winter of 2015, and a group of women and men living displaced from Syria in Istanbul. They met under the roof of Turkish NGO Small Projects Istanbul in the quiet residential neighborhood of Capa in the Fatih district of Istanbul. Our beginnings are testament to the power of intersections where those moving away from war are met by opportunity and community. Our name is a statement of our action, we begin again, stronger than before the war. We create together, collaborating our worlds through work.
