The Jüdische Kulturbund Project is an independent project to educate people about how the arts help people survive under tyranny. Your contribution will support our core efforts to produce a motion picture, a multimedia play, and lead education programs locally and via Skype around the world. After the completion of the movie and play, we want to continue building the legacy of the Kulturbund, providing ongoing cultural programs that encourage people to use the power of the arts in response to oppression.
The Project’s fiscal sponsor is the nonprofit International Documentary Association, a 501(c)(3) organization. All contributions are tax deductible.

Building our Audience
While the JK Project continues developing the multimedia play and dramatic feature film, we will present public speaking and education programs. We will also engage audiences through marketing campaigns and efforts such as…
- Leading education workshops for teachers and children (middle- and high-school)
- Producing a coffee-table book, exhibition, and interactive app—in collaboration with David Bruce Smith we will publish a book that features our project’s participating musicians and artists. The book will also present children’s music and art in response to exploring issues of oppression and learning the stories of our project’s participating musicians and artists.
- Producing/curating a group exhibition of visual artists.
- Producing a compilation music album.
- Exploring more ideas and ways to use technology to tell our stories!
