The "Common Sounds" program received a grant from the Embassy of the United States from 2014-2017. This program brought together Jewish and Arab music teachers and their students who created original music together, meeting in on another’s schools or at the Center for the Arts.
In the Summer of 2015, teachers participating in “Common Sounds” put together a summer workshop where 60 students aged 8-16 spent a magical week creating music together.
The staff at the Jezreel Valley Center for the Arts are always looking for new initiatives. We believe in using music and dance to bring people together.
