Culture and Art Events

Culture and art, heals! The first industry to get affected by any political, economic, epidemic or natural disaster in the country are culture and art events. First, events start to cancel, tickets are not sold, artists fall into silence and solitude. However, art is not an uncontrolled entertainment tool. Art is an effect. It brings us together with nature and cooling us in the shadow of the truth, deepening our understanding and love. Art is like a voice, a breath that will remind us of ourselves whenever we forget to touch life. In this uncertain period, focusing on playing a musical instrument, reading a book, watching a documentary, listening to an orchestra, reading a poem, dancing, looking at the sky will balance us and will be an occasion to meet our inner house at home.
