“Community Now” – Kick-Off Meeting in Israel


ast week, we visited Israel for the Kick-Off of our joint project “Community Now?“.
It was an amazing research trip, full of wonderful encounters and insights. Together with our partners from the Bezalel Academy, we worked on issues in the particular neighborhoods, discussed joint approaches, methods and research questions.

We visited the sculptor and farmer Uri Sigal-Galkin in his Moshav Amikam, plotted plans with the Goethe Institut Tel Aviv, spoke with Eyal Danon at the Digital Art Center Holon, visited the Yad Be Yad (Hand in Hand) School in Beit Safafa, the exhibition space Hensen Center for Design at the former hospital – and of course the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design on Mount Scopus in Jerusalem.
