Storytelling Expedition


Storytelling Expedition is a program that provides dreamers and adventure-lovers of with an opportunity to explore Istanbul’s most beautiful, poetic and history-rich places through the eyes and stories of the locals.

What We Do

Looking at the city as an adventurer, not a tourist. We do not focus on sightseeing but we unveil years of history. We do this simply because beauty is to be admired. By joining, you have a chance to listen to amazing, heart-touching stories of strangers, and explore the beauty and mystery of Istanbul.

What We Need

Volunteers with Turkish, English, and Arabic speaking skills who can communicate with people in Istanbul, even approaching them on the street. Photographers and videographers are especially needed to capture these stories in the best way possible. If you love an Istanbul neighborhood and want to lead an expedition, email us at


We aim to hold a storytelling program once a month.
