As reported on, the Jerusalem Season of Culture Festival (Mekudeshet) is an innovative art initiative taking place in the Holy City for a month, during this summer. The very city of Jerusalem and its complexities are the main focus of the festival, which came to life in the context of the Jerusalem artistic communities. The festival is a series of rather interesting, unique art events, including:

    • Living Water (August 15) – Music performance by four female musicians from the Middle Eastern area
    • One night in Atlantis (August 9) – Art performance at the YMCA’s pool
    • Blindsight (August 21) – An immersive experience in Ein Kerem, to enjoy with closed eyes
    • Dissolving Boundaries Series (many dates) – A series of events mixing music with exploring Jerusalem’s realities of social change
    • Demonstrate Restraint (August 25) – A powerful dance and vocal performance
