- This event is over.
Together, we choose to “peek” into each other’s lives as well as the depth of each other’s culture, by diving into the core of both Israel and India which lies in the streets, politics, community and more.
The usage of the Skype technology – as the first tool of breaking the existing barriers – helps in creating the relationship between the performers. That, eventually, brings up similarities between artists from different backgrounds, different traditional countries, religions, communities and minorities.
