EUROPALIA TURKEY - 06.10.2015 > 31.01.2016

As from October 2015, EUROPALIA focuses on Turkey! Turkey is often called “the cradle of civilization”. Since the earliest prehistoric times Anatolia has served as a bridge between Europe and Asia. Few other countries have known such a large number of civilizations succeed one another or exist side by side. Down the centuries this has fuelled intercultural cross-fertilization. So standing as it does at the crossroads of Asian and European cultures, Turkey is the ideal candidate for this edition.

Exceptional masterpieces from the greatest Turkish museums, the best contemporary arts have to show, traditional and contemporary dance, co-creations, from classical to electronic music, literary events, focus on film… from October 6th
