Main courses of activity at Beita
Beita sees as its goal to create a lively dialogue in the field of social art in Jerusalem, nurturing original creative processes, and providing insights into activities in the field. The center operates in several tracks:
BeitaCity– a unique visitor’s center, which offers the public an information center, art tours, and art centers map.
BeitArtist– changing exhibitions and hosting of artistic initiatives.
BeitAcademy– courses, workshops and an open classroom.
Beita’s vision is founded on a multidisciplinary approach, that believes art strengthens involved, creative, and communal citizenship, where, through the creation of culture, artists affect decision making processes in the urban sphere. The building of Beita was a threefold collaboration including municipality authorities which shape the image of the city, artists who create in the urban space, and residents of Jerusalem.
