This guide reflects Facebook’s mission to give people the power to build communities and interact with each other, and brings together the tips of Facebook communities about the art world in Turkey. We hope this guide will contribute to the creation of bigger art communities in Istanbul and in other cities of Turkey, help art lovers find each other and increase interactions about art.

We hope to continue discovering the art events, places and art pieces and continue writing our story together.
