Our Manifesto

The International Erguvan Art & Academy, consisting of high school and college students—from all around the globe—have come together chanting the motto “Art will save the world”...

By working together & harnessing the power of art, we can create a more hopeful future for all.

Through our projects, we hope to inspire others to use their own talents and passions to make a positive impact on the world.

By combining our unique perspectives and expertise, we aim to create content that uplifts this message and promotes the importance of art in society.

Book Readings

We come together every day at a predetermined time with the sole purpose of following a piece of text mutually agreed upon by the redbuds. This serves as a reason to come together and grow intellectually!

How has your experience as a redbud under the Erguvan Art & Academy been? 

My experience as a redbud under the Erguvan Art & Academy has been wonderful! Although I will admit I am not very active I still enjoy the meetings and the atmosphere of the group. I have never seen a more supportive and welcoming group than Erguvan.

I'm not good with words but if it's enough to show my experience, all I have to say is that it was inequivalent to anything else I have experienced. It was Invaluable.

Polat Member

I have found a place where improvement and acceptance coexist. This is the space where art, philosophy, science, and discovery in its whole essence is celebrated, encouraged and strived for. Erguvan gives me the space and community to try new things, improve myself and connect with the people around me.

Being a redbud feels like you will always have someone to talk to when you are feeling down. In the morning, you get to participate in these amazing projects with brilliant people; and at night, you get to study for your finals together.

Dilara Member

It was a great experience for my children, they attended with great excitement and willingness. They even said I wish we could go on the weekend. We look forward to attending this summer school again next year.

My child's summer camp was an absolute blast! From the moment we arrived, the staff welcomed us with the warmest smiles, making us feel like we belonged there. The camp's focus on giving back to the community was so heartwarming, and my son learned the importance of kindness and helping others. The mentors were like superheroes, being such wonderful role models for the kids, encouraging them to shine bright. This camp was pure magic, and I can't recommend it enough to all the fellow parents out there! It's a must for a fantastic and unforgettable summer experience!
