Study trip to Israel

An exchange study trip with our students from the Community Now Semester Course at the UdK took place from 18th to 25th February 2014. We had amazing days and great time with our partner students and researchers from the master’s degree program at Hansen Center, Bezalel Academy. We did mapping exercises, tested our new tools like the De-Routing App, gathered insights and material, got to know several neighborhoods in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv and had a lot of work and fun together!

Efrat Meyer from Yad Be Yad gave us an introduction to the neighborhoods we are working with in the joint project, at the Symposium we got to know several initiatives and projects that are relevant for our research, we listened to the singer Shaanan Streett from Hadag Nahash, visited Idan’s Kibbutz up in the north, enjoyed the Muslala Humus & Arts Tour with Oron, dipped into the Dead Sea and much more! With the new cultural probe, the students gathered unexpected inspiration and a good basis for discussion, analyses and research. Looking very much forward to the trip of the Bezalel students to Berlin, end of May. See also: Master’s degree program at Bezalel
