This project aimed to form a dialogue between the students and academic staff of fine arts faculties in Anatolia. In meetings carried out with fine arts faculties, in addition to art education, the aim was to carry out an exchange of ideas about artistic practices based on questioning and exploration, and how art education can be practiced today. Within this scope, debates and workshops were held with students of fine arts faculties in Istanbul as well as Kocaeli, Mersin, Antakya and Çanakkale. A book including articles on these subjects was also published as part of the project.
