Exhibition: “Dialogue in the Dark”
We support the Exhibition: “Dialogue in the Dark”, which enables visitors to experience the daily life in a completely dark environment without using their sight, so that it is also experienced by Istanbulites.
Since 1988, the exhibition has been visited by 7 million people across 130 cities globally, aiming to change the perception and improve the awareness of the visitors by having them experience their daily lives in the city in a completely dark environment.
As part of our sponsorship for the exhibition “Dialogue in the Dark”, we ensure that the city life in Istanbul is rebuilt in the eyes of those without sight and the visitors will “see” Istanbul and experience visits to key venues without their sight.
Anatolian Brands Competition
Over the last 3 years, we have kept supporting the Anatolian Brands competition, organized to raise awareness towards non-Istanbul based Turkish companies that take major steps towards branding.
Türkiye Finans helms the project to promote branding awareness, and bring together and recognize branding strategies and branding success stories in non-Istanbul provinces.
Down Cafe Project
Down Café has been operating in Şişli since 2011 to encourage the youth with Down Syndrome to participate in social life and work, and starts to service in different points of Istanbul with the launch of Mobile Down Café application.
We support the Mobile Down Cafe project by financing two vehicles and granting food aid, and by this project we aim for social integration and employment of the disabled youth and improvement of societal awareness about this matter.
