  • Cultural Activity

  •  

    ​The Culture departments goal is to help bring exposure to the vitality and dynamism of Israeli cultural and artistic life to South African audiences.

    In that, we are involved in bringing over to South Africa, Israeli musicians, Bands, Dance Groups, Ballet, Theatre, Visual Arts etc.

     

    Every year we are fortunate to put on the Israel Film Festival across four major cities in SA.

     

  • Outreach Work

  •  
    Tikkun Olam (Repairing the World) is a concept that is very dear to the State's vision and so bringing Israeli achievement and expertise to all South Africans in order to foster talent and education is something we pride ourselves on.
     
    Therefore, wherever possible, Israeli artists that come to South Africa are involved in outreach work to share their knowledge and experience with previously disadvantaged communities and artists.
  • Past Performers

  •  
    Among the prominent Israeli artists who have performed in South Africa, are Musicians Idan Raichel, Ivri Gitlis, Jazz Bassist Avishai Cohen, Roy Horowitz and his theatre group, the Tami Dance Theatre, Avi lebovitch & the Israeli Jazz Orchestra, Director Motti Lerner, The Cameri Theatre's "The Rat Laughed" and many more.
