Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Lod
This is a unique program for providing tools and developing capabilities, providing an equal opportunity for higher education, success, and self-actualization for future leaders in the fields of art, design, and architecture in Israel.
Purpose of the program: To extend access to academic studies and higher education at Bezalel and elsewhere for students, by identifying and exposing youth from the periphery who are talented in the fields of art, design, and architecture, and to equip them with tools, offer programming and activities, and enable them to create products of their talents through opportunities unavailable to them at their school and at the local community center.
The program creates a space for practical and intellectual enrichment, for developing skills and gaining experience that will promote the development of the participants as young, curious, creative artists – as artists for the future who are entrenched in artistic discourse and relevant, contemporary action in the field of art and design. The program will encourage the participants to develop a position and an independent perspective, together with the ability to express it in the language of art, in writing, and verbally by individual creative artistic work.
