Archiving

We believe that the theatrical heritage of Turkey powerfully reflects our cultural diversity and it is integral to our collective memory. Unfortunately, an inclusive and complete archive of our theatrical heritage, with its long-standing history and rooted tradition, has not yet been created so far.

One of the objectives of the Theatre Foundation of Turkey is to create the archive of Turkish theatre and pass this reservoir on to future generations to facilitate the future production of knowledge.

As part of the archive studies that we began in 2018, we have been sorting and digitalizing all the materials that we have obtained through donations and purchases. We are still accessioning items into our inventory database that we designed following modern criteria and best practices for archiving.
