Sabancı University Sakıp Sabancı Museum (SSM), in the “Meeting the City, Meeting the Museum” project which is being realized in cooperation with the Istanbul Municipalities, focuses on bringing women who are far from the city and artistic activities due to limited transportation facilities into contact with art and the museum. Within the framework of this project, the goal is to provide the opportunity for women to visit the museum and take part in the workshops.

So far, 4125 women have participated in the excursions from the Kadıköy, Sultanbeyli, Sarıyer,Şişli,Sancaktepe,Kağıthane,Beylikdüzü,Kartal and other municipalities. The women, in the company of guides, visit the current and the permanent exhibition and then participate in workshops.

This activity will continue uninterrupted at the SSM once a week.

Those who wish to participate in the excursion and activity need only contact the cultural center of their local municipality.
