Turkey has a young population that adopts new communication technologies very rapidly. For this reason for the coming years an increase in cultural output by using communication technologies is expected. There may also be more contemporary artists who employ digital techniques in an interesting way in the near future. The E-culture field as it is understood in the Netherlands, however, is very small in Turkey. There is rarely a feeling of a digital creative scene, nor of a community of digital artists. Critique on communication technologies is mostly given by contemporary artists, civil society activists, and technology experts. If these actors can interact and deepen their knowledge, the e-cultural ecosystem in Turkey can grow stronger, and meaningful digital-physical hybrids will emerge. The current e-culture scene in Turkey is very small and needs to grow to accommodate and adsorb the big wave of students that will leave the many (communication) design departments in the coming five years.
