Would you like to meet interesting personalities from Istanbul’s past? And what kind of characters do you think would exist in a fantastical Istanbul of the future? We study the futuristic works of the exhibition inspired by Byzantine times and explore the shapes that make up domes, arches, and thick fortress walls. Next, we use our collection of shapes and create fantastic characters. This workshop allows us to integrate cultural heritage items with our imagination and develop our creativity and artistic skills.
