Fostering Tel Aviv’s unique Art Space and allowing it to continue growing by offering a 3-year strengthening program.

THE NEED 

Strengthen the Kiryat HaMelacha complex – Allow Tel Aviv’s unique art space to continue to grow and prevent its decline due to the Covid-19 crisis.

OBJECTIVE 

Support local artists by turning the complex into an active Arts Hub including events, workshops, and lectures, which will provide work for the artist’s community.

THE NEED 

The crisis of the Corona plague that erupted in March 2020, brought great distress to the entire cultural and artistic industry in Israel. Due to the limitations of social distance many artists are in financial distress and have a hard time sustaining themselves and their families. Located in a dodgy part of town, the complex has organically developed into an exciting area, where new kinds of creativity arise. The Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality wants to support this organic transformation and strengthen the Kiryat HaMelacha complex by allowing it to continue to grow despite the coronavirus crisis.

IMPACT

Allowing the approximately 350 artists and 20 galleries operating in the complex to continue to create and grow.
