48 artists of all disciplines will go into quarantine, alone or with one other artist, throughout January and February, in our studio in Jerusalem. (Yes, you can leave to sleep! So if you’re not from the area, do figure out a place to spend the night)
The Jewish tradition lists ways to receive and reach the Torah: “Kinyanei Hatora.” These universal 48 items are also our starting-off point for the artists’ projects. The list can be viewed at the end of this page. (There’s only one per artist, so first come first serve)
We are inviting any artist who wants to isolate for 48 hours of creation. Artists of all kinds are welcome, including -
Fine arts / Design / Performance Art / Poetry / Writing / Spoken Word / Sound / Music / Dance
Submission Deadline: January 14th 2021
Beginning of Quarantines: January 17th 2021
The application is simple, with a few questions plus adding links to your work, and no need to write anything in advance.

A workspace in our studio in the Artist’s Colony, Jerusalem
A final presentation of selected works from the isolating artists
Documentation of the work and professional photographs of the artist at work
A kitchenette with food, and 400 nis reimbursement of expenses
