Culture Arts

General Information

We, Sabancı Foundation, believe that culture and art activities should reach people from all walks of life and consider supporting culture and art a priority. We invest in culture and art with the institutions we build in all regions of Turkey. In the 43 years that have passed since the establishment of our Foundation, we contributed many institutions such as Cultural Centers, Theater Halls and Museums to our country.

In all our activities, we have aimed to make art accessible for all and to bring art to more people. To this end;

  • We organize the Sabancı Foundation Short Film Competition to draw attention to social issues and to take action for solutions by making use of cinema’s power of influence.
  • We supported the Turkish Folk Dances Contest for 20 years and Mehtap Ar Children’s Theater for 8 years.
  • We have been organizing the International Adana Theater Festival for 19 years.
  • Since 2007, we have been supporting International Ankara Music Festival as an Honorary Member.
  • The Ancient City of Metropolis excavations and the Turkish Youth Philharmonic Orchestra are among the culture and art activities supported by Sabancı Foundation.
