The Jüdische Kulturbund Project hosted a two-day improvisational theatre workshop in June 2013 with performing artists to explore their personal and global affinities to the Kulturbund. The video below presents some of the ways in which we discovered connections between the issues of the Kulturbund and current-day artists.
This workshop initiative and short video was made possible thanks to a grant provided by the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, Inc. and individual contributions.

Please view some of the experiences shared with us by the artists who participated in the workshop and learn how they see the relevance of the Kulturbund.
