Social businesses

Sustainability model

We believe that in order to develop sustainable culture and art in new areas of Israel, we must create a solid economic base. From this belief, we developed an economic infrastructure for all of the initiatives that we have established over the years. In recent years, we have also established social businesses dedicated who are profit-oriented and set up to develop employment in the creative industry.
