Photographer Frederic Brenner’s newest project, “Israel: Portrait of a Work in Progress” brought 12 world-class photographers to Israel to create a unique portrait of the country’s multifaceted society.

This session previews the exhibit and launches a conversation of our own, about how funding the arts can be part of a funding strategy for issues such as Israel advocacy, social justice, and more.
