May we introduce… our member: the Antalya Women Museum in Turkey

Jun 28, 2017

The Antalya Women Museum is Turkey’s second virtual women museum. It was established on the 23rd November 2015 under the guidance of the Antalya Promotion Foundation, a non-profit organization with the aim to develop tourism on solid foundations and to increase social and economic benefits.

Established initially in a virtual setting, the intention is maintaining it not only as a visual area, but also as a dynamic educational and socio-cultural activity centre.

The museum features the stories of urban and rural women in Antalya and hosts exhibitions.

The latest exhibition “Nomad Bride” includes 40 photographs besides the “The Blessing of the Bridal Veil” installation. This exhibition about Turkmen Nomad / Yörük women is of great importance for the Turkish culture and the installation is meant to show how a nomadic bride could be described for our time.

 

The Antalya Women Museum honours every year a woman with the “Jale İnan Award”. The prize is named after Turkey’s first female archeologist.

 

The results of  Professor Dr. Jale İnan’s work can be seen in Perge and Side; two ancient cities that have become internationally renowned. Jale İnan started excavations in Side and Perge 60 years ago. Today Antalya is honored by her accomplishments.
