We are proud to add a new one to these events. Our ashiks, the representatives of our ashik tradition, which was included in the UNESCO ICH (Intangible Cultural Heritage) list in 2009, also undertook a mission to protect the Turkish language and transfer it to the future. As our University and our Center, we embrace this tradition and thus fulfill our corporate responsibility. For his contributions to such programs, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our Rector, Prof. Dr. Yavuz Ünal."
