About the Speaker:


Kerem Çiftçioğlu received his undergraduate degree from Sabancı University Social and Political Sciences, and his master’s degree from Essex University’s Human Rights Theory and Practice program. He has been working as the Communications Director at the Memory Center, which he joined in 2014. He tries to bring human rights together and tell the story of truth to wider audiences through methods such as data visualization, storytelling, hope-based communication, and interdisciplinary collaborations.

November’s Theme is Truth.


Truth lies at the bottom of a well, winding from its source in the icepack of distant mountains. Truth tastes pristine, uncompromised by what would be profitable or convenient. Truth causes your body to hum like a tuning fork, resonating at the same frequency as the universe around you. “When you experience an undeniable truth,” writer and social worker Jessica Dore observes, “you will beg, borrow, and steal. You will rearrange your whole life, forsake everything, just to serve what is real.”


And yet the truth is fiercely contested when competing narratives collide. We forge our truth in a crucible, testing its strength through heat and hammering. Instead of smashing our convictions against one another like a particle accelerator, could we sort through the messy, contradicting facts from all around us, together? Can we wade through paradox, the dark tangle of it all, and make sense of the world?

Our Buenos Aires chapter chose this month’s exploration of Truth and Sol Cotti illustrated the theme.
