About Us

Bosphorus Art Project, a not-for-profit organization, was founded in October 2003 and incorporated in January 2004 by a group of Turks and Turkish Americans. Bosphorus Art Project is 501(c)3 tax exempt organization.

Our goal is to bring Turkish art forms to Phoenix in an effort to establish a well-respected community of Turkish-Americans in Arizona, through activities such as, but not limited to, arts and culture festivals, concerts, performances, exhibitions, panels, publications, and multi-media productions.

We intend to make Turkish arts accessible and available to a broad range of audiences as well as support Turkish and Turkish-American artists by providing venues to showcase their talents and works. Our inspiration was the Moon and Stars Project in New York City who has been our partner and mentor between 2003 and 2006. Without the help of Moon And Stars Project™ our job would have been difficult indeed. They shared not only their bylaws, mission statements, and expertise but most importantly their experience and wisdom with us.

The 2005 and 2006 programs included a variety of directors and examples from contemporary Turkish cinema. Attendance at the festival is continuing to increase each year with our highest participation of 579 in 2006. This year we are hosting two movies at the Phoenix Film Festival (April 12-19, 2007).

Our first project was the 2004 Turkish Film Festival which took place in September 10-12, 2004. We presented a Restrospective of director Zeki Demirkubuz' works. The 2nd Annual Turkish Film Festival was held on October 14-16, 2005 @ Harkins Valley Art Theatre in Tempe, following Moon and Stars Project™'s NY Turkish Film Festival. The 2005 and 2006 programs included a variety of directors and examples from contemporary Turkish cinema. Please visit our webpage regularly to get more information on the upcoming events.

We also publish a quarterly online art magazine, Bosphorus Art Project Quarterly. Please visit BAP-Q page for more info on submissions and issue themes. Please visit our upcoming events page for more info.In the future we hope to include theatre productions, music concerts and art exhibits along with the annual film festival. We are co-sponsoring a classical guitar & voice concert (A Mediterranean Journey) with guitarist Cem Duruöz & soprano Camille Zamora with the Turkish American Association of Arizona. Please join us on March 25th, 2007 at the Herberger Theatre (Downtown Phoenix) and mingle with the artists during reception. We are excited to become a part of the Phoenix Film Festival this year.
