TOBAV, , with the "I CANNOT TELL YOU SHOULD SEE" project which it carries out jointly with the European Union, aims to provide equality of opportunity in access to and participation in art education by giving training in the art branches of Ceramic, Painting, Sculpture, Photography, Theater / Drama, Dance and Music for 9 months to sixty girls between the ages of 13 and 18, in line with their talents, residing in Ankara Saray Children's Housing Estate.

The project, which started on November 1, 2016, will end on October 31, 2017. During the first three months of the project, all infrastructure works, construction of ceramics and sculpture workshops were completed at the Project site located at Ankara Saray Children's Housing Estate, and ceramics ovens and all other equipment were procured.

The dance workshop with its floor, dance bars and mirror from wall to wall, the painting workshop with its easels, paints, canvases, the music workshop with its piano, guitars, saz instruments; the theater workshop with its costumes, the photography workshop with its photography machines were made ready for training

And as of February 8th, school bells rang at all workshops.

TOBAV (The State Theaters, Opera and Ballet Employees Solidarity Foundation), which was founded on December 28, 1981, started out, aiming to contribute to the Development of Contemporary arts in our country and saying "YES TO ART" for a more comprehensible world.

Since that day, touching humans by means of art, it has produced projects with the objective of ensuring that the art gains quality to the human life, and has implemented them.

TOBAV, in realizing such a project, has the purpose of "being able to socially integrate the disadvantaged people and improve their employability" as well as transforming the art culture into life culture.

Because every human was given birth to by a woman ...

and the life created both killer from a baby

and mother...


With this project, TOBAV aims to open self-confident, hopeful, totally new pages in the lives of 60 young girls, participating in the trainings, through the "constructive and healing" power of the art.
