Tranzit is a private foundation, being established in 1998, that promotes experimental, contemporary art. Tranzit Foundation is located in the building of “Poalei Tzedek”, a former synagogue. The Foundation gradually reconstructs the ruined building of the synagogue and transforms it to a centre for contemporary art. Its general objective is to enhance the communication between artists, intellectuals from different domains of activity and other social-professional groups as well as between different ethnic groups in order to mobilise intercultural creativity in the region. One of the goals of the Tranzit is to further develop a national and international network of independent cultural centres.
During our projects Tranzit Foundation worked with approximately 150 volunteers coming from different age, ethnic and professional groups.
