EU project Treasure has funded a new culture and sports facility in Turkish town Enez, offering, among other things, classes in Ebru, a traditional Turkish drawing technique, which enables you to create interesting patterns by spreading colour pigments onto a tray of oily water.

In conjunction with the underwater museum, the EU-funded project, Treasure, ( also including Bulgaria, Moldova, and Romania) has enabled the Turkish city of Enez to set up a culture and sports centre.

Here, different activities are offered to adults and children, such as music, art, and a variety of aquatic activities. Among those, they teach classes in Ebru art, a traditional Turkish drawing technique, which enables you to create interesting patterns by spreading colour pigments onto a tray of oily water.

The local coordinator, Remziye Irmak, of the Treasure project summarises the activities offered over the last two years.

"In the first years of the project. I mean, one, one and a half years before we gave free education in this school. Looks like a school here. Canoeing, fitness and pilates, and diving. I think more than 120 people had education about these activities. And in the next season of the winter period, we gave similar education for all public, we gave piano, violin, bağlama (traditional Turkish instrument like a banjo)"

"This centre is the big chance for people who are living in Enez, they have a chance to get this kind of education for their children and for themselves as well"
