"Turkish American Arts Society of New York" is a manifestation and creation after many dedicated years to the craft of cultural Turkish Arts. It is a culmination of the talent, vision, and effort of a community of artists residing between United States and Turkey. We are proudly a non-profit 501c(3) organization.
The main goal in creating this type of community is to expand the scope of Turkish culture through art. Its purpose is to contribute to present Turkish Arts and collaborate with other cultures. The content of our organization is theatre, music, cinema, and visual and auditory arts. Our organization consists of three branches, Theatre, New Manhattan Sinfonietta, and KaragozEverywhere (Turkish Shadow Play).
Our community has had significant support from the "NY Consulate General of the Turkish Republic ", "Turkish Republic Cultural Ministry ", "Turkish State Theatres", and especially many formal and imformal praise from organizations and individuals. This contributes to us moving forward with a more solid stride.
Our society includes many professional artists that are still active in the industry and also an army full of volunteers that do not leave us alone.
Thank you all for your interest in us.
