Urban transformation and a change of a city image through culture. The case of Turkish Ekişehir.

In the last decade, Turkey has experienced drastic changes in the area of culture and cultural heritage. A vivid revivial in the discourse and practices related to culture can be observed at the national as well as local level. The paper presents an analysis of the role culture plays in urban development as exemplified by one of the Turkish cities, which, due to an engaged mayor and his widely promoted vision of development based on culture, has been undergoing significant transformation. Eskişehir – a city associated in the 20th century primarily with industry – is nowadays aiming at becoming one of the leading places in art and culture in the country. The main goal of the article is to analyze the ways in which local authorities in Eskişehir relate to culture and take advantage of the cultural heritage of the city and its province (both tangible and intangible). Moreover, the paper discusses various determinants both conduicive and obstructive to the particular development pattern of the city.
