SALT will spread its Ankara-based research and programs, which began at SALT Ulus in April 2013, to different locations throughout the city. Exhibitions and public programs engaging with today's urgencies will be presented within the existent cultural infrastructure, while research projects around Ankara's multi-layered history will expand with collaborations. Addressing the imbalance of contemporary cultural activity across Turkey, SALT founded a base in the capital with the aim of stepping beyond the Istanbul-oriented agenda. In this new phase, SALT will broaden the scope and density of Ankara-wide collaborations with various initiatives, universities, and NGOs with the same aim.

Considering SALT Ulus' location outside of the city's urban circulation, SALT has moved selected exhibitions and programs to the center since 2016 in order to meet critical user groups of different ages and affiliations. As the institution privileges initiating and maintaining an accessible ground for discussing timely questions, it will continue its programs independently of the SALT Ulus building. The Ankara experience will set a precedent for facilitating short- and long-term collaborations on various subjects at other places over time.

Having begun with SALT Cinema at Çankaya Municipality Contemporary Arts Center (ÇSM), the 2017 fall program will continue with urban walks in Ankara and Is this our last chance? film screenings on climate change. Detailed information is available on saltonline.org under the SALT Ankara tag or on SALT Online social media accounts.

Use of SALT Ulus as a venue has ended as of September; archival work and research on the city, as well as planning of programs and collaborations, will continue at SALT's new office in Ankara.
