Gul Bulut is the founder and the trainer of the Education Drama Event Initiative. She was born in Stuttgart, Germany in 1969. She started her career at Kultur College in 1988 after high school and continued in Koç Holding and in one of its companies, I.D.E.A (Review, Consulting, Education and Research). She started work at Ipbuken Consulting, Organization and Innovation Company in February, 2001. While she was working there, according to her personal interests, Gul found a chance to continue her higher education at Istanbul University Departments of Classical Philology/ Ancient Greek Language and Literature and Archaeology. She graduated from these programs in 2006. She paused her business life after 19 years in 2007 due to her scholarship at Koç University’s Anatolian Civilizations and Cultural Heritage Management graduate program. She has been taking on tasks in various projects about museum practices and cultural heritage since 2010.
Gul Bulut encountered the techniques of Creative Drama while she was looking for a ‘tool’ that helps the universalization of the preservation of cultural heritage and introducing our cultural heritage into society, which makes museums essential parts of our lives. In relation with this, she graduated from Istanbul Drama Art Academy Program of Creative Drama Leadership/Traineeship in 2016. Her graduation project for children, named “Raising Awareness of ’Cultural Heritage’ and ‘Museum’ at Archaeological Museums to Today’s Youth Tomorrow’s Future”, established the fountain head of the “Drama at Museum” program.
Gul Bulut believes in a philosophy of life-long learning. In relation with this, she continues to meet people from different parts of society through her work to extend the preservation and the sustainability of cultural heritage, which she takes as a mission and believes a civic duty, since 2016.
She works at the Tell Atchana Archaeological Excavations as the formal Assistant Director of Administrative Affairs. She takes an active role in the “Archaeopark Project”, which aims to introduce the archaeological landscape of Tell Atchana to society.
