What are the birds thinking? (estd. 2022, Istanbul, Turkey) is a project to be realised by the Istanbul Biennial and İKSV Alt Kat, as a collaboration between Education Reform Initiative (ERG), Hisar Schools, Teachers Network and Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation Pera Museum Learning Programmes and Today at Apple. Focusing on children aged 6–14, the project aims to initiate a creative process to redirect the imagination of children as well as accompanying adults, teachers and experts and reconnect them with birds, nature and non-humans, and start multi-dimensional conversations about all that connects to the birds. The project invites children and accompanying adults from all over Turkey to lift up their heads and think about birds. It will help develop children's ability to listen, observe, concentrate, record and research by posing questions such as: ‘What are the birds thinking?’, ‘If they could speak to us, what would they say?’ and ‘What can we learn by watching the birds?’
