ISTANBUL INTERNATIONAL ARTS & CULTURE FESTIVAL (ISTANCOOL) ANNOUNCES LINE-UP FOR ITS FOURTH EDITION 
CURATED AND CO-FOUNDED BY ISTANBUL’74 
IN COLLABORATION WITH W MAGAZINE 
JUNE 13 – 15, 2014 | ISTANBUL, TURKEY 


ISTANBUL’74 presents the fourth edition of the Istanbul International Arts and Culture Festival (ISTANCOOL) in collaboration with W Magazine from June 13 through June 15, 2014. ISTANCOOL is hosted by Demet Müftüoglu Eşeli (ISTANBUL’74 founder), Alphan Eşeli (ISTANBUL’74 founder), and Stefano Tonchi (Editor in Chief, W). 
This year’s theme is “Intercultural Dialogues in Arts & Culture.” We are gathering to celebrate the “cultural mosaic” - a mix of creative people of different geographical roots, languages and cultures that co-exist within today’s global society. 
This year the festival aims to bring together artists that have preserved their heritage and culture, in and outside of their geographical boundaries, by retaining their diversity and influencing the world with their cultural ethnicities.
