1st session: Art As a Path for a Better Society With Milana Gitzin Adiram –Director and Chief Curator, ZUMU Museum

ZUMU, the museum on the move, is a community based mobile museum, which moves throughout Israel showcasing changing exhibits that are created and curated together with the local communities. At ZUMU (a portmanteau combining the Hebrew words for “move” and “museum”) we believe that art plays a key role in creating a more open and accepting community and builds bridges between all different sections of Israeli society. We set out on this groundbreaking journey in order to overcome geographical distances, to bridge cultural divides, to circumvent physical barriers, to overcome conceptual hurdles and to get rid of the conventional divisions between the artists & audiences, art & communities, and creativity & reality.
· VirtuARTS is part of a new series of lectures by Partnership2Gether Western Galilee.
