EVE – Independent Theater and Performance Art Creators Organization
EVE non-profit independent theater and performance art creators organization was founded by a group of artists who came together for a common goal: to enhance the independent creation scene in Israel: to create new horizons for action, to cultivate and promote independent Israeli creation and creators.
To fulfill this vision EVE works in two principle routes:
First – as an umbrella organization that provides its members with various professional services: financial management, professional counselling in different fields related to a creator’s everyday conduct (such as public relations, crowdfunding, marketing and more), rehearsal space subsidies, third-party insurance, professional seminars, providing access to professional information, scholarship application assistance, etc. Serving as an umbrella organization, EVE is the only establishment in Israel that enables any independent creator that meets the Ministry of Culture’s criteria to seek financial support from said Ministry.
Second – as an agent for change in the arena where independent creators operate. Among the activities included in this route are: promoting common interests with the governmental and cultural institutions, initiating independent creation festivals and developing audiences all over Israel.
The organization aims to expand its activity in order to find ways to assist the independent creators’ community in general, including those making their first steps in the field, and strives to improve the independent artists’ creative space and “living conditions”. Joining the organization requires meeting professional requirements and paying member dues. 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 membership fees – fees may vary from time to time.
The decision to accept new members under the requirements is the responsibility of the organization’s steering committee.
