ISTANBUL FOUNDATION FOR CULTURE AND ARTS (İKSV)

Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV) is a non-profit cultural institution that was founded in 1973. The general objectives of the Foundation are: to make Istanbul one of the world's foremost capitals of culture and the arts; to create continuous interaction between national and universal values and traditional and contemporary values via culture and the arts; and to contribute actively to the development of cultural policies. With these objectives, İKSV organises the Istanbul Festivals of Music, Film, Theatre and Jazz, as well as the Istanbul Biennial, the Istanbul Design Biennial, Leyla Gencer Voice Competition, autumn film week Filmekimi and one-off events throughout the year. The Foundation hosts cultural and artistic events at its performance venue Salon, located at the Nejat Eczacıbaşı Building. İKSV also organises the Pavilion of Turkey at la Biennale di Venezia and coordinates an artist residency programme at Cité International des Arts, France. Furthermore, İKSV conducts studies and drafts reports with the aim of contributing to cultural policy development.
The foundation also supports artistic and cultural production through presenting awards at its festivals, commissioning works and taking part in international and local co-productions, as well as the Aydın Gün Encouragement Award, presented annually to a young musician working in the field of classical music, and Talât Sait Halman Translation Award, presented to the translator of an outstanding literary translation into Turkish.
