 CREATIVE CITY Contemporary Culture Festival to be held in Israel

< p>

On May 28, the first festival of contemporary culture CREATIVE CITY will open in Israel. Within a month, ten events of various formats will be held, most of them in Tel Aviv. It is planned that the festival will be held in Israel every year. According to the organizers, the festival serves the mission of SNOB TLV: the adaptation of repatriates of creative professions in a new environment for them, so that each of them can find himself in his profession in Israel. At the heart of the festival – partnership, support and integration, as well as multilateral cooperation of repatriates from three countries: Israel, Russia and Ukraine.
The creative heritage of three cultures, united within the framework of the festival, uses art as a platform for dialogue and creating a positive agenda. Thanks to this, it is easier for people who have principles and values ​​to find a common language and unite, even if they find themselves on opposite sides of barricades or borders.
Festival Manifesto – CO-operation, CO-creation, CO-existence. Audience – all of Israel, a young country in all respects. According to festival producer and founder of SNOB TLV, Anton Sazonov, “regardless of when and under what circumstances we made aliyah, we are all in the same boat now, we are all Israelis, and we have to raise children here together.” SNOB TLV, the organizer of the festival, was created with the support of the Genesis Foundation. during the pandemic and has become one of the main secular Russian-speaking Jewish communities in Israel today.

Some of the events of the festival will be the first for SNOB TLV organized outside of Tel Aviv: on May 28, the premiere of the JLM STREET SHOW, created with the support of the Ministry of Jerusalem Affairs and National Heritage of Israel, will be held daily during Jerusalem Week on the streets of the Israeli capital. Immersive historical street show — this is the format that SNOB TLV first introduced together with director Sasha Kreindlin in the summer of 2021 in Tel Aviv. The guests of the show will become participants in the ongoing “here and now” stories, will be transported to another reality and will be able to look at the heavenly city from a completely new angle thanks to modern augmented reality technologies (personal VR devices, headphones with binaural sounds and street projections), a team of actors and the famous Israeli guide Boris Brestovitsky.
The festival is supported by RJC – the Russian Jewish Congress, the Ministry of Jerusalem Affairs and Israel's National Heritage, the non-profit organization Social Space and the Jaffa Development Company. Creative City – a logical continuation of the CREATORS platform and community, where new Israelis of creative professions who arrived this year find a common language.
