MEYHANE [mɛjhɑːnɛ]; is derived from the Persian words Mey (wine) and Hane (house).

Meyhane is a traditional restaurant historically found in Turkey, Iran and the Balkan region. It is all about sharing a selection of mezes accompanied by alcohol, usually Raki, at large tables with friends. This, of course, includes lots of singing, eating and socializing with other table companions; therefore providing a meeting point where thoughts and stories collide.

Corridor Project Space uses this ritual of sharing a meal as the basis for an art event. These events use food as a foundation for intercultural exchange. During each event they host a different participant(s) to tell us about their experience.
