Atlantic Institute (formerly Istanbul Center)
Two Midtown Plaza 1349 W Peachtree St NW Suite 1010
DescriptionAtlantic Institute is a 501(c)3 non-profit, non-governmental and non-partisan organization
that was formed as a spin-off of the Istanbul Center with a renewed focus on dialogue, education and community outreach.
Istanbul Center has been promoting dialogue, respect, and cooperation in the community since its foundation in 2002. Thanks to the members of the Board of Trustees and its hardworking staff, dedicated volunteers, generous donors and trusting friends and supporters, Istanbul Center has become a symbol of dialogue not only in Georgia but also in its neighboring states from South Carolina to Florida. Over the years its scope of work has expanded beyond community services originally intended for Turkish Americans of the southeast and reached to the areas of interfaith dialog, academic activities, youth, education and social responsibility projects.
Gradually the Atlantic Institute will be taking over Istanbul Center’s interfaith, academic and educational programs while Istanbul Center will continue to focus its efforts on community service activities as it has been doing since its inception with its new name of Istanbul Cultural Center. The new Atlantic Institute is where your work in international dialogue brings communities together.
