EVE Non-Profit Organization was founded in 2014 by a group of artists who decided to set out on a unitedlyindependent path with the intenttoenhance the independent creation scene in Israel, to allow freedom and goals for independent creators and to promote independent Israeli creation both in Israel and worldwide.
EVE is an umbrella organization that provides its members with financial management services, professional counselling, rehearsal space subsidies, insurance and professional seminars. In addition, the organization promotes common interests with the governmental and cultural institutions as well as initiates projects in accordance with the decisions of its members and its leading team. Throughout 2017 the organization will promote two projects that will take place in different locations across the country: independent creation festivals and a ‘debuts in the periphery’ program. EVE is an umbrella organization for independent theater artists seeking financial support from the Ministry of Culture.
The organization aims to expand its activity, to make professional information available for its members, to advise younger artists, make use of its veteran members’ knowledge and experience and to improve the independent artists’ creative space and “living conditions”. Joining the organization requires meeting professional requirements and paying member dues.
An initiative under the same name had been active until 2014 under the wing and management of other non-profit organizations (Dor 2000 and Itim Ensemble). The goal of the organization is broad and it acts toward advancing creation, creating opportunities for independent artists, providing professional consultation, etc. The basis for our approach is that the organization belongs to its members and that they collaboratively pave the way for its modus operandi.
Joining the Organization
Joining the organization requires meeting professional requirements (the organization is not of an artistic nature and aspires to empower a wide range of independent artists, as well as the field itself), paying 1000 Shekels in member dues and using its financial management services with a revenue of no less than 25,000 Shekels. The decision to accept new members under the requirements is the responsibility of the organization’s steering committee.
