Jewish Arts & Culture Lab Application
Below please find some important information about the application and the Fellowship, the 2018-2019 theme is "Spirit & Matter: Bodies & Things."


Formed from earth and from breath of the Divine, Adam, the - first human - embodied both spirit and matter. In our contemporary world, these two categories - the inert and the lively – are usually treated as separate. What if we viewed them as intertwined? How might we depict the intimate relationship between body and soul, people and things, spirit and matter?

This year (2018-2019), the Jewish Arts and Culture Lab looks closely at literature, painting, Jewish ritual objects, and a variety of other art forms to uncover the unexpected places where the physical and the transcendent overlap . Together we will learn texts, discuss objects, engage in creative processes designed to inspire you, deepen your thinking, and forge new connections with other local artists.

Visual artists, designers, media makers, writers, crafters, artisans, poets, photographers, dancers, musicians, curators and artists and creatives of all other media, are invited to apply to participate in this content-rich, supportive, collaborative fellowship.
