Word: Bruce Geller Memorial Prize is an annual award designed to support projects that consider meeting points between Jewish ideas and ideals, contemporary practice and texts. This year’s theme is FORGIVENESS, and AJU’s Institute for Jewish Creativity is pleased to support the creation of new projects that approach Jewish culture from a variety of perspectives, in terms of discipline, context and thematic elements.
Responding to changing conditions in the world, this is the first year in which submissions were accepted for digital projects that can be experienced worldwide.
Join us online to celebrate the grantees and explore the next great projects of the Jewish art world!
