Le Printemps des Artistes -PDA 2020

For those who are not familiar … what is the PDA ?

First established in 2006, “Le Printemps des Artistes” is a week-long art exhibition organised by Istanbul Accueil and hosted by our partner Sainte Pulchérie Lisesi in their Od’A – Ouvroir d’Art art gallery in Taksim.

The exhibition takes place in springtime and the aim is twofold: to showcase local artists (Turkish and international) while raising funds for carefully selected charities. Now in it’s 14th year, the PDA has become a famous cultural rendezvous for both the local Turkish, French speaking, and international communities as well as the local Arts community.

Istanbul, city of contrasts

 

Multi faceted, cosmopolitan, lively, colourful and noisy, this city, with both its classical and modern architecture, requires the use of all our senses. An exhibition curated around such a theme seemed for us an obvious choice. 

Welcome to the 14th Printemps des Artistes” art exhibition!

A charitable art exhibition

All works of art exhibited are for sale and 30% of the proceeds are generously donated to following three charities: Hayata Sarıl Dernegi , Mor Çatı Kadın Sığınağı Vakfı and Lape Hospital.

Hayata Sarıl Dernegi

Founded in 2017, the association’s aim is to reintegrate homeless individuals, ignored and marginalized in society, back into communal life. Based on a sustainable social entrepreneurship business model, the HAYATA SARIL lokantasi is the first of its kind in Turkey. Functioning entirely on a volunteer basis and providing job opportunities for the homeless, it acts as a regular restaurant during the day and serves food to the homeless at night.

Their next project, again based on the same business model, is focused on opening a laundromat and shower facilities for the homeless by the summer of 2020. A lack of hygiene being one of the main reasons for self-depreciation and social exclusion, this wonderful initiative will give people in need the opportunity to have access to a healthier lifestyle and help rebuild their self-esteem.

Mor Çatı

Mor Çatı was originally created in 1990 to provide shelter for women and children subjected to situations of domestic violence. The association has since set up a solidarity centre providing women with both legal aid and psychological support services. Their ultimate mission is to help women gain independence and fight against such inequality. The association works to end domestic violence against women and children by building women’s self-esteem and confidence and by helping to change their perception in society.

Lape Hospital (Fransız Lape Hastanesi)

Lape Hospital has been operating in Istanbul since 1857. Donated to the Sisters of Saint Vincent in 1902 by Sultan Abdul Hamid II, its main purpose is to treat patients with psychiatric disorders. It is still run by the Sisters of Charity who also founded Sainte Pulchérie Lisesi in 1864. As a key beneficiary of the project over the years, the historical link with LAPE has been instrumental in the development of our long-standing partnership with Sainte Pulcherie and the Od’A-Ouvroir d’Art Gallery.

Nos sponsors

MANY THANKS TO OUR SPONSORS !

A project like the PDA could not take place without the generosity of our sponsors.

Their support makes it possible to finance the various expenses linked to the organisation of such an event.

Their support helps us cover the cost of the gallery, security, communication, cocktail evening, music group and children’s workshops.

In short, without them, …..the PDA would not exist!

So, once again a big thank you to:
