Stars of Istanbul, a new project organized by UNICEF Turkey and Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality is turning into the biggest multi-purpose outdoor arts event to be held in Istanbul with the aim of giving young school dropouts an education.
The Stars of Istanbul project, which will continue until the end of November, aims to raise funds for a large number of school dropouts. The installations created by artists for the project will be sold at an international auction scheduled for December.
“Stars of Istanbul” opened in early September and will continue until November with the aim of creating funds for a crash-course school program for 90,000 dropouts aged 9 to 14 so that they can attain the same educational level as their peers.
The exhibition includes several star-shaped installations by various artists that are displayed at prominent locations in select neighborhoods in districts like Beyoğlu, Beşiktaş, Bakırköy, Kadıköy, Fatih and Şişli. The installations will be sold at an international auction scheduled for December.
