Well-known actress and visual artist Raida Adon Raida, whose exhibit at the Israel Museum, Jerusalem, was the first such solo exhibit by Arab Israeli artist to be featured in the iconic space. 

The Studio Israel conversation series was inaugurated in the fall of 2020, in partnership with the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute, the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University and the Vilna Shul, and is made possible by generous support from Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP). Studio Israel is also cosponsored by the Consulate General of Israel to New England. This peer-led series invites audiences to join leading artists, academics, and community leaders for a panoramic journey through the landscape of Israeli art, dance, food, fashion, and more, that investigates the diversity and nuance of Israel’s variegated social, cultural, and political aspects through the lens of the arts. 

This successful series continues through 2021 & 2022. It will continue to expand the scope of conversation and the diversity of artists and continue its in-depth exploration of the nuances of Israeli society through the arts.
