Experience Israel and explore social justice issues through the world of art.
Explore The Issues
Join the New Israel Fund on an arts & justice study tour—an immersive travel and learning experience exploring the critical social justice issues affecting Israeli society today – civil and human rights, religious freedom and tolerance, racism, violence and extremism, and economic parity. We will explore the essential connection between art-making and change-making in Israeli society.
Meet the leaders of Israel’s dynamic social change movement and explore how art is used as a tool for change.
Come to personally connect and meet with cutting edge artists and activists, NIF grantees, NIF-Israel staff and social justice leaders. Hear about their work, their vision, and the challenges they face. Learn how NIF’s philosophy of partnership and empowerment functions at both the ground and the political level. See the work that addresses the critical social justice issues effecting Israeli society today and promotes equality and democracy.
Stretch Your Mind
This trip is a unique opportunity to see Israel from up-close and in a new light. With a parallel focus on the arts in Israel, we will have an opportunity to visit artists in their galleries, attend a theater performance, listen to music, watch a movie with the filmmaker, explore museums, and much more. Our tour of the Israeli arts will focus on the artists’ ability to use their talent and creativity to deliver messages of hope and despair, fear and inspiration, and to create open and thoughtful spaces in which ordinary citizens can wrestle with the questions of social justice.
Return with renewed hope and energy, and a commitment to progressive values in Israel.
