General Information: 

Deutsch-Türkisches Forum Stuttgart (German-Turkish Forum Stuttgart; DTF) is a cultural association, which was founded in 1999 by German and Turkish citizens under presidency of the former mayor Manfred Rommel and the support of the Robert Bosch Foundation. The German-Turkish Forum is supported by a board of trustees of renowned German and Turkish personalities and by more than 380 members of the association. The forum programs are arranged by an honorary chairman and a main department supported by volunteers.

Mission and Objectives: 

The aim of the forum is to encourage cultural encounters and understanding between Germans and Turkish people living in Germany, especially by cooperation in training and education, art and culture, science and research. Furthermore, the forum facilitates the cultural, scientific and economic relations between Germany and Turkey.

Main Projects / Activities: 

Special emphasis is put on academic and non-academic education, on cultural music programs, literature, movies, theatre, on supporting and completing other cultural foundations and on organizing manifold meetings and political discussions. Recently the forum has also taken on social questions, which concern German-Turkish Stuttgart citizens.

During all the years of its activities, the German-Turkish Forum has become the most sought after and reliable cooperation partner. Its activities have attracted interest within the Federal Republic of Germany and in Turkey. The initiative of the forum has contributed to the charisma and reputation of Stuttgart, the capital of the federal state of Baden-Wurttemberg. The great effort Stuttgart has made to integrate immigrants successfully has been honoured in the state- and city comparison.
