In 2011, following a decade of unprecedented arts and culture programs, and having built a dedicated corps of viewers and supporters, Moon and Stars Project became a part of The American Turkish Society, a pioneer organization committed to enhancing ties and mutual understanding among the peoples of the U.S and Turkey.
