    Welcome to the Office of Cultural Affairs

    The Office of Cultural Affairs at the Consulate General of Israel to the Midwest oversees and coordinates cultural programming in an eleven state region. We are proud to present young, emerging and more established artists specializing in the performing, visual, literary, and cinematic arts, who through their work weave a vibrant tapestry celebrating Israeli culture and style. It is our mission to bring such work to cultural institutions throughout our region.

    Director of Cultural Affairs, Michelle Higgins
