KPY Yearbook 2012 – 2013 concentrates on the role played by cultural actors during the change and transformation processes revealed as a result of crises and what kinds of innovative strategies, management and policy tools are formed as a result. This issue aims to question the types of creative management and policy proposals conveyed from the culture-arts front in a setting we are right in the midst of worldwide and where the civil society’s mode of participation in politics is renewed and to compile the reviews in this regard.
