Anatolian Arts Institute

Cultural Heritage Organization

Anatolia’s cultural heritage is rich and diverse, dating back to ancient times. However, it has also been marked by centuries of conflict. Art professionals and polyglots Duygu Gun and Nur Yavuz met in the Bay Area, and discovered their shared passion for cultural exchange and their belief in the power of art to transcend boundaries. They founded the Anatolian Arts Institute (ANA+) with the aim of regenerating communities through participatory art events and educational programs. The organization seeks to foster a collaborative and inclusive environment which opens doors for new possibilities.
