The Journalists and Writers Foundation tried to present messages of tolerance and dialogue to the public. In 1999 these messages were shared with intellectual friends in the Dialogue Platform, which was held every Tuesday evening at the foundation center.

Experts on subjects ranging from the press to the economy, from politics to the arts, from diplomacy to defense and from history to law spoke freely at our Foundation before a distinguished audience in a warm atmosphere. The country's problems were debated; solutions and recommendations were made.

Our Foundation, which is proud to bring together enlightened people from every view in Turkey's heritage, is continuing the Dialogue Platform meetings that are attracting more interest and taking place on a broader spectrum every week. Our guests ranged from Altemur Kilic to Ilhan Kesici, from Ege Cansen to Nail Gureli, from Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu to Mustafa Miyasoglu, from Gultekin Cizgen to Etyen Mahcupyan and Cenk Koray, from Izzet Sedes and Oktay Eksi to Gulay Gokturk and Cuneyt Ulsever, including Huseyin and Husrev Hatemi – all of whom gave talks to our friends.
