The Istanbul Summer Program is a two-week intensive held at Klasik Turk Sanatlar Vakfi in Uskudar, Istanbul, July 18 - 29, 2022. Klasik Turk Sanatlar Vakfi is housed in a renovated Mevlevihanesi (Historic Building) and is dedicated to studying the Islamic arts. The classroom walls are covered with original calligraphy, tezhip, ebru, and miniature artwork that inspires reverence for the arts and the One they praise.

The old city on the European (Fatih and Eyup) and Asian (Uskudar and Beykoz) sides are considered an open-air museum for Islamic arts; however, Uskudar has more classes, foundations, galleries, etc. exhibitions dedicated to the Islamic arts than any other borough of Istanbul. Moreover, the Mayor of Uskudar, Hilmi Turkmen, is a dedicated art patron.

We will be in the Aziz Mahmud Hudai and Mimar Sinan neighborhoods of Uskudar, with everything you need within walking distance. You can also use electric scooters to get around. We advise you to stay local regardless of 4 and 5-star accommodations.

Entering and getting around the city requires several extra steps because of Covid. We will guide you through those steps before you arr
