Founded in 1963, Beit HaGefen is a cultural center which seeks to create shared egalitarian spaces that contain the variety of identities and cultures in Haifa, and in Israel in general.

Our activities and mission are based on the belief that interpersonal acquaintanceship and an encounter with another culture and its narratives are essential for breaking down barriers and building trust. We do so through cultural encounters and creating a space and forum for people and artists to represent their identities and narratives through art and dialogue. All of our divisions – including our youth and cultural events departments –strive to generate and foster a discourse surrounding social and political issues, with an emphasis on connection through arts and culture. Our programming directors have many years of experience building bridges between communities through cultural activities.
