Urban Culture Campus
Pozitif launched the bomontiada campus in September 2015, operated by Bomonti Kültür A.Ş., formed in collaboration with Doğuş Group and D-ream. Pozitif, renowned in Turkey for pioneering music, arts and culture festivals and media, manages the creative experience, curation and community management of the bomontiada program and campus. Located at the center of Istanbul in a historic beer factory re-purposed as a public and commercial social space, Bomontiada hosts a music club and performance center, a contemporary art space, three restaurants, a co-working makers studio, photography gallery and cafe, bomontiada aims to foster a platform for creative industry economy through a culture of exchange and creative production. The shared overground area is envisioned as a playground for collaboration where residents, partners and tenants will collaborate on a program of cultural activities, co-generating screenings, concerts, visual art performances, food festivals, creative business conventions and more. bomontiada’s functions are accompanied by green spaces, restaurants, a microbrewery, as well as a space dedicated to the memory of the campus’ earlier function as a beer factory with adjoining beer gardens. The bomontiada site sits within the residential and commercial fabric of Bomonti and Feriköy, next to small-scale textile production zones, a hotel tower, a university and the neighborhood organic food market.
