Through a series of educational programs, community outreach/engagement programs, various interdisciplinary performances, and a label producing newly commissioned contemporary works, we have established a lasting dialogue that mutually benefits these countries and enriches their communities.

By targeting the next generation of artists in the US and Turkey, we provide for them a platform to have access to more opportunities for collaboration and creation, thus enhancing the cultural dialogue. 


Our partners are an integral part of TACL's success. We graciously thank our partners for their support in our cause.
