The Jerusalem International Fellows is a ten week residency program for leading performing artists, choreographers, visual artists, architects and urban planners from around the world, who wish to collaborate with independent artists, ensembles and cultural institutions in East and West Jerusalem.
Four artists, from Brazil, India, Mexico and the U.S. were selected to participate.
The Pilot residency in Jerusalem launched on March 8, 2022.
The Fellows departed Jerusalem on May 17th. You can read their reflections on our blog.
Conclusion of the JIF Evaluation:
The groundbreaking Jerusalem International Fellows (JIF) enriched the
landscape of Jerusalem art and culture at a time when Jerusalemites were
thirsty to break out of the culture of isolation generated by Covid and to
conspire with leading artists from around the world. The ten-weeks were
filled with meaningful introductions, experiences, and creative
collaborations. The nucleus was just four artists, each matched with a
host organization. Together, they inspired many people in various
disciplines across west and east Jerusalem. As a pilot program launched
in less than optimal time constraints, the program had a resounding
impact already, and with a few tweaks and improvements, can easily
become a permanent fixture in the Jerusalem community, with host
organizations lined up to take part.
