Since 2004, Garanti organizes the “Mini Bank Children’s Film Festival”, the first film festival for children in Turkey, together with Cinema and Audiovisual Culture Foundation of Turkey (TÜRSAK).
In addition, Garanti has organized the first film festival, which is called the Garanti Children’s Film Festival, for children in Turkey in conjunction with Turkey Cinema and Audiovisual Culture Foundation (TURSAK) annually since 2004. Through the Festival, around 85,000 children from fifteen cities in Turkey with a more limited access to cinema found the opportunity to experience the art of cinema.
Garanti continues to support Turkey’s first and only modern art museum, Istanbul Modern since 2005. Program aims to raise creative, questioning individuals who are interested in art. By the end of 2015, more than 550,000 children and young individuals had received training within this training program.
Garanti Bank has supported the establishment of structures, which encourage artists to perform innovative research, through a special exhibition prepared in 2015 in İstanbul Modern. “YAP İstanbul Modern: New Architecture Program” which is carried out by İstanbul Modern in collaboration with The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and MoMA PS1, gives young architects the opportunity to design a temporary building in the open area of Istanbul Modern. The program aims to encourage architects to use innovative design research about the possibilities of increasing open areas’ utilization and suggesting environmental friendly solutions.
