Skype meeting Turkish and Dutch students

Skype meeting Turkish and Dutch students


This year we celebrate 400 years of diplomatic relations between the Netherlands and Turkey. In 1612 the first Dutch ambassador, Cornelis Haga, arrived in Istanbul after four months of travelling. Thanks to the internet students from the oldest academies from both countries can meet in only one afternoon; the Mimar Sinan University of Fine Arts in Istanbul, and the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague.

The Turkish fashion students started their research into the perception of the police in Turkey. Today they met for the first time via a skype meeting. Despite of the distance (more than 2.700 km) the Dutch students could clarify their ideas and the Turkish students could react on them.
