Diyalog was founded 2006 by creatives and cultural workers in Istanbul.
Special attention was on the overcoming of borders, which still exists in the culture between nations, countries, communities and genders.
The principal objectives were the promotion of exchange and cooperation in order to carry out an intercultural understanding to strengthen as well as above all the cultural dialogue between communities.
The basic research and work of the association focuses on collaboration in old and new media, technology, and theory with an emphasis on social contexts.
The association emphasis professionals working in different creative disciplines (e.g. media-creatives, satirists, visual artists, writers and film-makers); they are brought together in order to develop and open on an international level sources for the realisation of cultural works, projects and activities.
