Welcome to the Art Kibbutz Application Page

Art Kibbutz – the International Jewish Artist Residency – proudly announces residency programs for 2017 entitled: Embracing Opportunity: Strengthening Ourselves, Our Community, Our World. These programs continue Art Kibbutz’s commitment to non-hierarchical, collaborative communities where artists work alongside one another to strengthen their identities and our world. In this time of emotionally charged speech and impulsive acts by leaders and citizens alike, artists will find the time and perspective provided by novel supportive surroundings to assimilate what is, and visualize what can be.

Emerging and seasoned artists alike will join these residencies to assess and process experiences in this era of social change and challenge. Artists will produce work on any topic, while engaging in periodic group discussions encompassing aspects of Jewish tradition and social ethics. We aim to define common ground and increase the reach and influence of our art empowered by our engagement with Jewish culture, history, and spirituality – regardless of individual identity as Jews or non-Jews.

Art Kibbutz supports artists working on their own projects, as well as collaborations with other artists or linked to other communities. Emboldened by participation in this residency, artists will be better equipped to utilize their creative skills to defend those most in peril, counter anger with constructive acts, meet hatred with regard and love for our neighbors, and work towards the goal of healing the world.
