Fevzipaşa Mahallesi Çay Kenarı Sokak No:151, 17100 Çanakkale/Türkiye (For Direction)


Reflecting the multicultural past and architectural heritage of Çanakkale, MAHAL, which opened in autumn 2013, functions as a multi-purpose, open space, infrastructure and communication network, a contemporary art and culture archive for production, exhibitions and screenings in different disciplines of art, civil society activities and all kinds of inventive non-profit projects from Çanakkale, Turkey and the world, as well as international projects implemented by CABININ. An old warehouse with the same characteristics as MAHAL, located right next to it, was opened as a civil society and art-oriented space under the name StudioMAHAL in the summer of 2022, following the restoration works that started in the summer of 2020 with the initiative's own resources.

StudioMAHAL hosted its first guests within the scope of the 8th Çanakkale Biennial, with its mezzanine floor functioning as a "guest programme-residency" where important representatives of today's cultural production such as artists, designers, writers, directors, translators, academics and art experts will be hosted, and its large area as a common space where art production can be made, workshops, masterclasses, and performances can be held.

Reflecting the multicultural urban heritage of Çanakkale, the Oaknut Warehouses area is becoming a habitat for contemporary art with the contributions of all members, stakeholders and supporters of CABININ and the participation of Çanakkale civil society and the components of contemporary art production.

StudioMAHAL is brought to life with the financial and non-material contributions of the Gueldelsberger Family to keep the memory Eren Sean Guendelsberger, who passed away at a young age.

StudioMAHAL was realised with CABININ's own funds as well as with the infrastructural support of CultureCIVIC, funded by the European Union.
