Irmak was born and raised in Istanbul, Turkey, and has been living in Montreal for the past 10 years. Her curiosity about people, individually and collectively, led her to a degree in Psychology and International Development Studies at McGill followed by a graduate degree in Anthropology at Concordia. She believes in the power of community organizing and as an aspiring artist she is always looking for ways to bring arts into action.
She has worked in various academic and non-profit contexts organizing workshops and events, bringing people together and facilitating connections. In her free time she likes to experiment with up-cycled crafts and lay down at parks.
