ABOUT US

www.3nokta.com was born 1999.  The website started out as a blog with a motto, ‘’Love and knowledge grow through sharing.’’ After 20 years, the blog planted the seeds of the book “Dream Melodies-Voyage to Opera” and an art contest “Dream Melodies”. Today, the website also keeps Turkish speakers abreast of cultural news & events from all around the world and broaden their perceptions on various art movements.

“Dream Melodies-Voyage to Opera” was published in 2019. This book will take you on a journey to opera and melody, introducing the audience to a little bit of Turkish musical scene along the way. You will realise after you turn the last page, that not only do you have a favorite aria now, but you also know enough to comment on opera.

The proceeds from the book sale will go towards ‘Dream Melodies Art Contest’.You may purchase “Dream Melodies-Voyage to Opera” on amazon.com.

Dream Melodies Art Contest is an art contest that was inspired by an idea of merging music and painting during the writing phase of the book ‘Dream Melodies-Voyage to Opera’. First Art Contest is established in 2020. The main aims of ‘Dream Melodies’ Art Contest are to promote interest in opera as an art form, support art students in their creative processes and generate diversity in a country’s art and cultural fabric. The participants are asked to watch a predetermined opera and express their feelings on either the whole, a particular scene, or certain songs and melodies that struck a chord with them (whether they understand the meaning of the words or not), from that opera. They are also expected to write down their experiences and feelings when they watched the opera.

The art contest is non-profit. It is held to help Academy of Fine Arts and Art Teachers students grow and support them financially. You may support the art contest on Patreon  patreon.com/dreammelodies link pages, you can see our dreams, aims and patron gifts.
