Position paper – Inclusion of Marginalized Communities into the Israeli Cultural Texture, Mandel Institute for Educational Leadership (2002).
The paper addresses an ongoing process of exclusion of marginalized communities from the sphere of art and culture, as it is in other fields as well. The paper suggests to the Ministry of Culture to actively support artists of excluded groups, to include them in decision-making teams, to foster establishment of art and cultures incubators and to offer art classes in schools of excluded groups. This should be done so that children and adults will be able to realize their part in the society and influence the formulation of the Israeli identity.
