We are excited to announce the Creative-in-Residence program at Robert College. Our goal is to invite artists, writers, creators, and educators to visit our campus to expose our students to their creative process while providing a unique environment in which to work.
Our inaugural Creator is renowned chemical engineer and textile designer Dr. Gönül Paksoy visiting from 18 to 28 April. Gönül Hanım will share her principles and process of sustainability and zero waste in all aspects of her work.
