How do differing artistic mediums uncover, make visible, or refocus the places where people, things, or ideas come together, cross paths, or mix-up, even if only for a moment?

This conference focuses on what is cutting edge in the arts and culture world in Israel – slicing across a broad cross-section of the arts from film to music to dance to visual culture to theater and performing arts – and placing emphasis on complex intersections and mixing – between artistic mediums (e.g. film and music), between cultures and religions, between other identities and belongings (such as gender and disability).

The program includes a film series; a cultural performances by artists, writers, and musicians; an academic conference; and classroom dialogues.
