Timcheh e.V. is a non-profit organization based in Cologne, founded by a group of friends in March 2020.
The term “Timcheh” (reads Tim-che [tɪm-t͡ʃə]) means a ‘small Caravansary’. As a part of a Bazaar – the liveliest and socially most diverse hub in cities of Iran – it offers a space to pause, meet and interact.
Timcheh e.V. wants to recreate such a space, in that we meet as travelers, migrants, and locals. It invites us to listen, observe, and reflect on our diverse, yet familiar cultural motifs. We aim for a cross-border and cross-cultural community that facilitates the dialogue between international creative individuals and supports underrepresented perspectives.
