MOON AND STARS PROJECT
We can no longer wait to be discovered, we have to bring
our own stars into light...
Keşfedilmeyi daha fazla bekleyemeyiz, kendi yıldızlarımıza
biz ışık tutmalıyız...
Although scientists predict that there are billions of stars in
the sky, they have been able to identify only about 400,000 of them so far.
Saying "I'm from Turkey" in the United States feels like you're
from another, yet undiscovered galaxy sometimes. Seeing how little people know
about our rich culture and heritage, as well as our present and people, seems so
unfair at times that it hurts. And it is such a loss for both sites.
can no longer wait for the world to discover us -especially not in today's
information super-highway where everybody is competing for even the slightest
exposure and attention. We have to bring our own stars into light.
And now, there is a platform where we can all come together and join our efforts
to meet that end: Moon and Stars Project. You actually know us as the
organizers of MayFest. We have recently restructured to have a firmer
base, but our focus is the same: Highlighting Turkish arts and culture in
the United States.
One ouf our main goals is still keeping the Turkish-American community
well connected to cultural life back home, but as we've grown, so too have our
goals. Another one - one that we will be emphasizing more from now on - is
maintaining a Turkish arts and cultural presence here throughout the year. This
way, we expect to contribute to and eventually become a part of cultural mosaic
that is America.
What's more, we aim to encourage the artistic development of our artists through
scholarships, sponsorships, grants and exchange programs, as well as help them
gain access and exposure.
Please, join us in whichever way you can, be it with your financial,
organizational, or moral support. We need and expect to go on seeing you on our
side. We have high goals, as high as the stars, but together we can make the
best of our journey all the way beyond the skies.
