ESRA presents

A Walking Tour of the Artist Colonies of Jerusalem
jerslm_artist.jpg
‎A rare look into the neighbourhoods of Hutzot Hayotzer and Nachlaot through the eyes of the artists. Meet ‎artists in their studios, visit galleries on and off the beaten track, ‎and learn of their unique connection to Jerusalem.‎
 
  • The Judaica and Israeli Art Tour takes place in Hutzot Hayotzer, an artists’  hub nestled in the ‎Hinnom Valley between the Old and New City.‎ Meet painters, silversmiths, and calligraphers amongst others. Speak with the artists about ‎their work and see them in action in their studios.‎
  • The Nachlaot Tour takes place in one of the oldest and most authentic neighbourhoods  of ‎Jerusalem. Nachlaot hosts a multi-cultural and multi-generational population which is a ‎microcosm of Israeli culture at large. It is no surprise then that many leading Israeli artists ‎find their home and studio here. Explore the history of the neighbourhood walking through ‎its alleyways and courtyards, stopping along the way to meet and talk with artists, curators ‎and art collectors.‎
