Launched in 2013, SIJCC’s Culture Lab is an interdisciplinary arts program designed to foster new work and provoke a community-wide conversation about arts and culture that is grounded in Jewish tradition.
Each Culture Lab cycle brings together a small team of peer-nominated artists for a four-month exploration of a specific theme. The SIJCC provides the artists with structure and financial support, as well as studio space for the length of the program. Based on the backgrounds and interests of the artists, SIJCC connects the artists with a select group of Jewish scholars and experts in collaborative process. Each cycle concludes with a culminating exhibition, presented by SIJCC, engaging Los Angeles’s Jewish and arts communities.
