For 2022 we have again prepared a varied program for you.
June 3, 2022: Lecture “Southeastern Anatolia – Ethnic diversity in Turkey’s oldest cultural area”
Southeast Turkey is a culturally rich and diverse region. It was shaped by the different ethnic groups and religions of the people who live there.
We want to bring this region closer to our guests in a photo and video lecture that shows the impressive architectural monuments, but above all focuses strongly on the culture and tradition of the people. Impressions of a Kurdish Newroz celebration in Diyarbakir are shown as well as Sira Geceleri, the famous musical evenings in Sanli Urfa, the original bazaar of Mardin, the biblical Haran on the Syrian border and the famous Christian monastery Mor Gabriel.
The speaker is Daniela Lieberwirth, the chairwoman of the KultEurasia association. She has been to Turkey regularly since 2000 and has mastered the basics of the Turkish language, which has enabled her to delve deeply into the everyday life of the people there.
June 8, 2022: A journey to the land of fire – impressions from Azerbaijan – guest lecture at the Euro-Arab Friendship Circle in Munich

A focus of the lecture will be Sheki with its beautiful old town, the famous Khan’s Palace and its caravanserai as well as an original Navruz celebration there. The village of Kish in the area is one of the oldest villages in the country with a rich history.
