"Establishing Contact – Dialog through Art" (the Bezalel-SheKeL Project)

This project evolved from a concept according to which art can be used to establish a unique link and partnership between fully-functioning and dysfunctional artists. The project conceives art as a visual language, transcending the boundaries of conventional links and relationships between people, and allows the participating artists to bond and create together, through a cooperative alliance between creative artists.
The uniqueness of this program stems from the fact that it had not been defined as a coaching/mentoring project, but rather as a program that adopts the principle of equality between creative artists, regardless of their daily functional backgrounds. This year, 7 artists from the Shekel Society, along with 7 students from Bezalel's various departments, have been chosen to participate in the program.
