Hello Dear Friends,

As individuals who are sensitive to nature and art, we came together under the umbrella of the Art for Nature Association and organize various art events to raise awareness about the plunder of nature in our country and the right to life of all living things in nature, because we believe in the stimulating, unifying and healing power of art.

In this context, we are organizing a PHOTO EVENT. The name of our Photography Event is “STOP TO NATURE LOAD!” and its purpose; When we say mines, HEPPs, GPPs, highways, concrete cities, we draw attention to the increasing plunder of nature in our country and all over the world. After the evaluation of the photos you have sent to us by our jury members, we will organize the “SAY STOP TO THE NATURE FLOOR WITH YOUR PHOTOS!” and we will witness the increasing plunder in our country, where the agenda is changing rapidly, by bringing them together in a booklet with the same name.

After the pandemic (painting, sculpture, scriptwriting, drama and acting, art history, etc.) two courses (six months) training for the participants who received the first three degrees in the competition.
Mentioned participants will be provided with a course (three months) training in their preferred art.

If you participate in our event, you can announce the plunder in your region to the public with the photos you take. You can find detailed information about our activity on our website. Thank you all for protecting nature.

Hope to meet you at our exhibition…

Are you aware that we are losing nature!
Destruction of forests, pollution of water resources, seas and lakes, poisoning of the soil with chemicals under the name of fertilization, destructive damages of mining, HEPPs, GPPs, highways, ports, shopping malls, housing, increasing concretion…! All of these are threatening nature and the living creatures in nature more and more every day.
Nature is being plundered and destroyed for the sake of profit! We see, hear and feel them! We know the importance of nature, but do we have enough sensitivity and struggle to raise public awareness for the protection of natural life?
As the Art for Nature Association, our mission is to raise public awareness of the importance of nature, which is plundered for profit. For this purpose, we are organizing a Photography Event with the subject of “NATURE FIELD”. In this way, we think that we can once again draw attention to the Plunder of Nature, bring together the Friends of Nature and warn the Enemies of Nature.
The name of our event is “STOP TO THE LOAD OF NATURE!”
You can also contribute to this effort with your photographs and increase our justified sensitivity!
