Art is a important fact to create independent society which contributes culture and leads men and society to modern world. New percipiences, modern thoughts can be reached to the society most efficiently and permanently by art. Art, which gives meaning to the world and makes it liveable, have been voice of conscience against the carnages and deaths of mankind’s history. And it will be.

Art and artist,  which are adversative in their esence, shares every wrong in every situtation. They don’t  bow down to the power or the dominant ones. Art requires to being free by forcing limits of imagination, to being independent and to destroying stereotyped rules. Art, which is concrete form of “Another world is possible.” philosophy, which means hope,  is under great threat of censorship and auto censorhip which has not been seen in history of men. We are witnessing  the prohibitings of art, the demolishing of art institutions and the efforts of destroying imagination and creativity of artists while lies, threats, blackmails, raids and profiteerings are killing the morals of society.

We are proceeding International İzmir Theatre Festival with thema of “COURAGE” by mixing our Ankara experience with İzmir’s local values.

New percipiences, modern thoughts are reaching to the society most efficiently and permanently by art. Carnivals, festivals are the places that unites all society for sharing and solidarity. Because of this, festivals are the source of power which refreshing society, spiriting enthusiasm and solidarity up that people are not used to.
