It was indeed in the street, just outside the studio where the artist symposium is taking place. It was part of the opening, called 'Tanora'.

You can find an explanation here: [link]
It is very folkloric here but obviously the origin is in the Mevlevi Dervishes, and you being in Turkey you know about the Mevlana and so on.

Thank you! That would be great to be shown around by you.
I have actually been to the Mevlevi House in Taksim, but have not been to Konya.

Yes they are rather colourful, very different from the White the Dervishes wear in Turkey.
