Musrara Mix has been one of our more inventive arts events for some time now. The 17th edition of the festival takes place in the eponymous neighborhood on June 6-8, with a typically eclectic offering engineered by perennial artistic director Avi Sabag.

The festival program is true in spirit to the host establishment’s location, on the seam between east and west Jerusalem, with all the associated cultural and sociopolitical baggage. Sabag, who normally earns a crust as director of the Naggar Multidisciplinary School of Art and Society, has cooked up yet another fascinating array of exhibitions and other art projects.
