In Jerusalem

Teenage culture bubble

The Jerusalem Foundation and Mishkenot Sha’ananim provide an alternative project for teens while creating more jobs for home-grown artists.

The Jerusalem Foundation
Last month Bubble, a Jerusalem Foundation and Mishkenot Sha’ananim joint project for teenagers aged 16 to 18 – organized a “horror evening” at the Hansen Mutimedia Center in Talbiyeh. Evenings like these are a monthly staple for Bubble, and give teens things to do that awaken their interest and keep them away off the streets, out of bars and away from unsupervised house parties, says Eyal Sher, the foundation’s arts and culture director.

Bubble was established three years ago with the goal of exposing teens to an array of cultural events at venues such as the Hansen Center and Mishkenot Sha’ananim. The idea behind the project is to create more jobs in Jerusalem for young artists, says Sher, explaining that the way to do this is to “cultivate the future generations of art and culture consumers.”
