Atelier Muse


Atelier Muse is a creative initiative as an arts and culture consultancy office that implements new approaches to arts and culture field by carrying out interdisciplinary cross-sectoral projects. Atelier Muse adopts a global and collaborative point of view with partners sharing the same vision as being present and actively productive in life.
Atelier Muse Residency Program, among other projects, initiated in 2017, is the realisation of a lifelong dream of its founder Müge Olacak to add value to life by coming together, exchanging knowledge and creativity with curiosity. The program is established to host artists from all around the world, creating a bridge of understanding between cultures and leveraging the knowhow and qualifications of arts and culture field. Istanbul, a city that is both Asian and European, is without a doubt the best place to get stimulated and inspired. The organisation shares its founder’s believe, that art is a remedy for growing divisions and conflicts in today’s societies and we are able find a common ground by working together in creating it. While program focuses on contemporary dance, performance, writing and new media arts, it is also open for artists who works on social causes independently of disciplines.

  • Regular, active, and productive use of the studio space during the residency period.
  • A public presentation as a publication, performance piece, workshop, film etc.
  • A creative way of hosting an event at the new Atelier Muse space.
  • A written and visual log for further communication and their archive.
