A Roof for New Urbanism
Clal Center, 97 Jaffa Rd.; the tours leave from Alliance Gate
Friday, October 27th, 10:00  
Fit for childrenEchologic TourAccessabile Tour
A tour at the Clal Center in downtown Jerusalem that will leave its participants optimistic. In recent years, the building has been undergoing renewal processes and land use designation changes. The tours will introduce participants to the groups who started working there a few years ago - Muslala, Kayamuta and the Beshutaf Cooperative – as well as the Terrace which is a combination between an urban rooftop park, art and sustainability studio, public space, and research lab dealing with sustainable urban life.
The Clal Building was built in the 1970s on the ruins of the former "Torah v`Avoda" school. It was Jerusalem`s first indoor shopping mall – a novel concept at the time. The 15-story structure, designed by the architect Dan Eytan, was supposed to be the first of several hi-rise buildings in the downtown area, but the plan never materialized due to the criticism that the Clal Center generated.
The tours will focus on the history of the building and the activities that currently take place there, most of which are held in the public space in order to create a new model in which an act of art that has a social dimension occurs in the urban space and has an impact on it.
Open tour. Reservations not required.

I`m a Political Wall
Meeting place: Davidka Square (next to the fountain), at the intersection of Jaffa Rd.
Thursday, October 26th, 20:00  
When, if ever, have you closely observed a drawing or writing sprayed on a wall on some street? Most of us are inclined to filter that information as street `noise.` However, during these tours led by graffiti artists from the Grafitiyul team, full attention will be paid to them. An attempt will be made to investigate the Jerusalem manifestations of this urban art genre that is now prevalent in nearly every large city worldwide. By observing the writing and drawings, tensions existing between different groups in the city and their respective fields of interest will be revealed, as will the reality in the Holy City as seen through activist prisms. The boundaries of creativity and freedom of expression are among the topics that will be raised.
The tour will end at its starting point.
Advance reservations required; the tour is limited to 30 participants.
