WE GET STRENTGHT FROM ATATURK
Stating that they are happy to host such a valuable and special event, Rector Prof. Dr. Yusuf Hakan Abacıoğlu said, “Our Great Leader Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, in a statement explaining the importance he attached to art, said, ‘A nation cannot have a complete life if it is deprived of art and artists’. I think it has a special meaning to commemorate the Great Ataturk, who thought like this and illuminated our path with his horizon and vision, with a special art event. We were happy to host artist Pınar Ayhan at our University. We commemorate our great leader and ancestor with respect, gratitude and mercy on the 85th anniversary of his death. Taking strength from our ancestor, our history, and the heroism of our past, we will work to raise young people who are self-confident, love their homeland, and follow the path of science and reason in order to march strongly towards the goal of Greater Turkey. We will raise young people who will carry our Republic forward.”
