İKSV organises workshops, conferences, and symposia and prepares publications that accompany these activities with the aim of enriching the exchange of ideas about arts and culture, increasing the participation of artists and art enthusiasts in this dialogue, and contributing to the development of cultural policies. İKSV also conducts studies that will guide the development of cultural policies, in cooperation with a variety of institutions.

İKSV collaborates with several organisations and networks that form the EU’s cultural policies and is also part of the Turkish network of the Anna Lindh Euro-Mediterranean Foundation since 2005 and continues to make collaborations with a number of NGOs as part of its cultural policy efforts.
