Nu Art Projects [Insert Jewish Culture Here] is dedicated to increasing Jewish cultural appreciation through well-crafted participatory experiences. We understand that culture and art have a very important role to play in reinforcing Jewish identity and promoting continuity.
Our projects create a space for interaction and dialogue using the visual and performing arts as a tool to engage the Jewish community.
We believe strongly in the power of participatory cultural experiences and believe art education is enhanced through a variety of ways when it directly engages the audience. Nu ART encounters our audience where they are and pulls them into well-crafted cultural experiences. Our projects create a space for interaction, dialogue, and change using the visual and performing arts as a tool to engage the Jewish community. The ability to create temporary cultural happenings exposes Jewish concepts to a broad audience.
For more than a decade the Jewish Federation, the Jewish Artists Initiative (JAI), the Skirball Cultural Center and others have worked to foster Jewish cultural experiences for residents of Los Angeles. Building on these efforts Nu ART Projects creates a way to expand this conversation reaching new audiences and engaging long time participants in innovate ways.
Nu ART allows all SoCal Jews an opportunity to experience the quality and diversity of contemporary Jewish culture firsthand. You could participate by helping to fund works of art as a diner at a SEDER Micro-grant communal meal or by supporting the creation of a mobile Jewish art lab.
Nu ART is committed to raising awareness in Los Angeles and beyond regarding the value of art in Jewish life. Our programming will remain reflective of LA allowing Jews of all ages the ability to explore, engage, and foster an increased appreciation of Jewish culture.
