A quick note about TURVAK Museum and discounted ticket price for our group :

The  museum is already a very beautiful place and with this interesting exhibition, we will have added advantages 🙂

Some of you may wish to visit the museum only and not participate in our Curious Souls meeting. If you do so, then the museum will apply a special discounted ticket rate of only 5 TL, valid for our group. (For those of you who cannot visit the museum but will participate in our meeting, there is no change in the fee.) So it may be a good occasion bring interested friends and family members.

The venue is very easy to find: just walk up to Galatasaray roundabout on Istiklal street (approx. midway) then walk down from Yeniçarşı street (Galatasaray highschool should be on your left) up to number 24 on your right. TURVAK Museum is there.

For the details of our programme, please visit our announcement page.

Have a great evening and see you all tomorrow at 13:00.

Best regards
Isil the Curious Soul 🙂

Venue of our 13th Meeting will be: TURVAK Cinema and Theatre Museum!

TURVAK Cinema Theatre Museum

Dear Curious Souls,

I am very happy to announce you that the venue of our 13th meeting will be “TURVAK Cinema and Theatre Museum.” It is very centrally located in Taksim Beyoglu and it is the  first and only museum of its kind in Turkey!

The museum was founded by Türker Inanoglu who is called as “Mr.Cinema” in Turkey because of his invaluable contributions to cinema. The museum houses more than 1000 cinema and television devices, 4200 copies of various Turkish films, more than 6000 Turkish film posters, more than 10.000 film and stage photographs, and over 12.000 hours of TV programs and TV series in its collection.

On March 1,2015, on Sunday, we will first have a guided tour of the museum in English, and, following that, while we still breathe history, we will proceed to the terrace floor, get our tea/coffee and cookies and, amidst a magnificient view of Istanbul that will accompany us, we will start  watching and discussing interesting TED Talks.

It is a  fantastic way to pass a lazy Sunday afternoon! Don’t you think?

So, dear Curious Souls, I look forward to seeing you at the TURVAK Museum, until then, I wish you all, wonderful days!

With my kindest  regards!

“Philosophy’s LOVE” : A Bit of Philosophy For The Curious Souls!

Dear Curious Souls,

What can be more tempting for hungry Curious Souls like us, to learn more about love?
If you agree, then I would like to inform you that there will be a “Philosophy Evening” with the title: “Philosophy’s love.”

Felsefenin Aski
What is love? How do philosophers interpret love? If, even Socrates says that he learned about  love from the old woman Diotime, can we also learn about love? Can philosophy fill in empty spaces that we may have about love and help us  introduce new colors to the way we experience love? These are some of the questions that we will be discussing and learning about. Isn’t it fastinating? 🙂

The host of the event is Dr.Ufuk Yaltıraklı, a friend of mine, who is a  pschotherapist and philosopher. He lives in Berlin and orginizes  “Philisophy Evenings” there since 8 years. Event is sponsored by Kadıkoy Municipality and it is free of charge. However, as no reservations are taken, I suggest that you come a bit earlier  if you would like to make sure that you participate.

Unfortunately, the event is only in Turkish. I am sorry for my non-Turkish speaking  friends 😦 However, we may, in the future, find an opportunity,  to have an English version of this meeting for only the Curious Souls.

So if you would like to join this event, please reserve the date in your agenda and come to Kadıköy Cultural center on February 11.

Until then, I wish you all wonderful days.

Isil the Curious Soul 🙂

“Curious Souls Get Together” – 13th Meeting!

Dear Curious Souls,

Are you fascinated with new ideas and new ways of looking at life? Do you have an insatiable desire to learn more? Do you get immense pleasure in listening to inspirational stories of great minds, and are you filled with appreciation for great talents?

In short, are you a “Curious Soul”?

If you are, then, let’s get together once again and watch 3 or 4 very interesting, mind-stretching and entertaining TED talks (http://www.ted.com). After each talk, we can have a chance to share our own views.

If you are ready to experience the flourishing of diverse ideas, if you would like to express yourself, expand your horizons and grow together, and,  while doing these, if you would like to pass an enjoyable time together, then I invite you to come and join us at our 13 th meeting!

I will inform about the venue of this meeting in a short while. Yet you can be assured that, as usual, we will meet in a very nice place  such as a beautiful art gallery or a club where we will immensely enjoy the time we spend together. So until then, please put the date in your agenda 🙂 (By the way, if you have any suggestions for a venue,  I would really appreciate, as it is sometimes quite a task to arrange one.)

So I hope you can make it to our 13th meeting and until then, I wish you all, wonderful days, no matter how good or how bad the events may be!

With my kindest regards!

Isil the Curious Soul 🙂
