- What’s On
Organised by Printemps des Artistes (PDA), this annual charitable art exhibition and sale aims to raise funds to support charity initiatives and introduce up-and-coming Istanbul artists to the public, in particular to the French-speaking and international expat community. The theme of this year’s show is Randevu, emphasising the event as a meeting point for people from different cultures and with various life experiences.
All art works, which include paintings, photographs and ceramics, are on sale. This year, 30 percent of the proceeds will be generously donated by the artists to two charities: the Lape Hospital, which is run by the Sisters of Charity and operates solely thanks to private donations, and YUSRA Community Centre, a support centre for refugee women and children living in Balat. The remaining 70 percent will go to the artist.
The following artists will participate: Toygan Eren, Alev Araslı, Valerie Çelebi, Timurtaş Onan, Hulya Özdemir, Gülsün-Öykü Doğan, Imad Habbab, Adnan Jetto, Özlem Acaroğlu, Suzet Haklı and İrfan Yavru.
