Inspiration - Arts for Humanity
Development team - Head of new media Apr 2012 – Dec 2013
Inspiration is an innovative socio-cultural creation based equally on the foundation principles of artistic excellence, social activism and community engagement.
Inspiration aims to connect nations and cultures, artists and youngsters, faiths and languages, the cutting edge of the holistic artistic process, art advocates and leaders of change.
Inspiration’s vision is deep-rooted in the universal language of art and has the ability to promote peace, camaraderie and dialogue between nations.
Inspiration strives to develop as an all-embracing socio-cultural initiative and international social movement for individuals, groups, organizations and businesses in Israel and around the world. Inspiration will promote worldwide activity in society, culture, education and art. Traditional notions of academic elitism will be discarded in favour of cross-cultural and discipline pollination. Artistic diversity is the lifeblood and future of improved geo-political mutual understanding.
The founders of Inspiration believe that art is a valuable and cathartic message that each artist communicates with the world, which resonates deeply when it is at its truest and most beautiful. This inspiration, when this is funneled through the prism of social change/awareness, transforms art into a very powerful tool to initiate progress around the world.
Inspiration will use the most cutting edge technology to help facilitate and communicate its artistic and educational vision. This technology will be used in concert with the oldest and most efficient of artistic technologies – a passionate search for an aesthetic truth through space, reflection and collaboration.

Nowadays we’re all producing and consuming User Generated Content (YouTube, Soundcloud, Facebook and many many others…)
Hey even this website is part of that process.
