ArtBnB, a res­i­dency project for artists, will be held in Jerusalem from De­cem­ber 9 to 20. The project in­vited 20 artists work­ing in dif­fer­ent me­dia from 17 dif­fer­ent coun­tries to spend two weeks cre­at­ing art in three cul­tural cen­ters in the heart of Jerusalem – Ham­if­fal, Beita, and the Mus­lala Ter­race in the Clal Build­ing. 20 Is­raeli artists will be work­ing along­side them, ac­com­pa­ny­ing and col­lab­o­rat­ing with them. Some of the cul­tural cen­ters will al­lo­cate space for ac­com­mo­da­tion, as well as work in­fra­struc­tures, and will be­come tem­po­rary guest homes for the artists from abroad. The work process of the artists, car­ried out both in­side and in the pub­lic space around the cen­ters, will be open to pub­lic view. The fes­ti­val also of­fers a pro­gram that in­cludes meet­ings with the artists, pro­fes­sional work­shops and in­ter­ac­tive events. On De­cem­ber 20, a fi­nal event will be held with a wan­der­ing ex­hi­bi­tion dis­play­ing all the prod­ucts of the project, which will re­main on site and in the pub­lic spa­ces.
