The Education Program was developed in 1998, focusing primarily on youth from Jerusalem, by providing them with opportunities to engage in creative acitivites which are otherwise neglected in the school systems. 

Specifically, by developing participants' aesthetic awareness and appreciation of their surroundings, the youth workshops seek to enable participants to express themselves more effectively and to challenge issues, whether social, political, or environmental,  that affect them, their peers and their wider community. Through creative, stimulating and challenging workshops, participants learn new modes of expression. 

Organised in partnership with community centers, youth clubs and educational institutions, the workshops are led by artists both from the local community and visitng artists from all over the world who participate in the Artist-in-Residence program. As such, the program is part of an ongoing effort to connect and collaborate with different institutions and individuals at local, regional and international levels.

The Angel of History

Ashkan Sepahvand

"The Angel of History", hosted by Ashkan Sepahvan and based on a discussion of Walter Benjamin's "On the Concept of History", addressed the following questions: Is it possible to present a historical landscape in which the experiences of the downtrodden co-exist spatially and emporally, with the experiences of the victors, who never cease to blindly proclaim their singular, “historical” accomplishments? and What does it mean to disappear, only to be found again as a broken image, an incomplete reference, a story stopped short, a gesture that carries the burden of enduring the present?
