The first of our ‘Silent Screams’ painting exhibitions, with which we set out with nearly 40 painters and our slogan ‘There is No Excuse for Violence’ was held on November 1, 2022. During this event Prof. Dr. Mansur Beyazyürek’s held a conference on violence and art. Our aim is to stand in against psychological and physical violence against women, men, animals, young people, old people, doctors, health workers, teachers, lawyers, judges, police, and all living beings.
Our second exhibition will be opening on 11.11.2022 in BOF HOTELS BUSINESS, Istanbul, Umraniye, Turkey. It will be held until 19.11.2022. A percentage of the revenues from our exhibition will be donated by the artists to the victims of violence and those in need.
Through these art events we seek to address the harms of violence on human psychology and overall health, as well as to increase social and individual awareness of this destructive behavior’s. The openings of our exhibitions will be held with conferences by the leading psychiatrists and psychologists in Turkey.
Further exhibitions are planned to take place in 81 provinces, and we hope to see all municipalities, relevant institutions, aid associations as our supporters in this socially responsible project!
