He assisted in the organisation of the annual Bilkent Classical Guitar Festivals (2004-2010), hosting workshops and masterclasses with renowned artists such as Roland Dyens, Leo Brouwer, Costas Cotsiolis and Aniello Desiderio. Barkin toured South-East Europe and Asia-minor with renowned vocal artist Cem Adrian, and performed with celebrated pianist Fazil Say.
