Performing Arts Center
After five years in which the abandoned Rav Chen cinema complex stood, three Jerusalem cultural bodies joined forces with Rami Levy with the aim of making it a creative home for bodies and for the city's residents. The seven studios and concert halls are home to the activities of an entire dance center, the interdisciplinary arena and between heaven and earth.
The entrance space has a transparent and high ceiling in the center of the complex will be designed as a green patio And together with the well, they will serve as a common public living room, which is a magnet for a meeting of artists and artists who see it as a source of inspiration that nourishes their work and a creative home for renewed and contemporary Jerusalem cultural content.
The new center invites the wide and diverse audience to enjoy young, innovative and vibrant content in the fields of theater, dance, performance, music and visual arts for the benefit of all culture lovers in the city and as part of an aspiration to engage with multicultural populations.
The creative communities in Jerusalem and the surrounding area will have a variety of spaces available, including rehearsal rooms, equipped concert halls, changing rooms and toilets, the patio as a cultural space and community meeting place, lighting equipment, sound, projection, photography and documentation, library and meeting rooms.
The space is gradually operated according to existing principles and preservation of the environment. Alongside all this, the three bodies will offer, individually and in collaboration, artistic accompaniment, artist residency programs, extensive production projects that take place throughout the year, record events, festivals and hosting of young Jerusalem cultural bodies from around the country and abroad.
The renovation of the center was done thanks to the Jerusalem Municipality and the Eden Company.
Campy is further established for many years of discourse and joint work between independent creative bodies and artists in Jerusalem with the aim of promoting the relevant dance, creative, audience and support scene. KMPI is A new collaborative fund established at the initiative of three leading independent dance organizations in Jerusalem - the KTMMON Dance Group, a complete dance between heaven and earth that will enable economic cooperation between bodies, creators and dance organizations in Jerusalem.
The added value at the basis of the vision of this new initiative is the collaborative model on which it is based. A model that enables the pooling of resources, an increased sense of belonging and community empowerment. These are all values that today, in the midst of the corona crisis, are clear and distinct, and need to be assimilated into the dance community in particular and the society in which we live as a whole.
The cooperative bank consists of three circles- Partners, beneficiaries and supporters who deposit membership fees, while the partner community enjoys grants for projects such as research budget, professional advice, production of new work and more.
Along with the gifts, various advice, subsidies and services are provided to the community, in order to enable ongoing and relevant support for the artists / s, which is independent of an establishment or government. By matching the gifts and services to the three circles, we can enable services and content relevant to each of the groups. Together - we will strengthen the sense of belonging and create an innovative vision for the independent Jerusalem dance community. Campi is open to any member who wishes to strengthen the community and enjoys it without political or institutional influence. The KMPI account will be managed In a sustainable bank - a sustainable association.
