Projects

Aside from the general operation, Nalaga’at is constantly developing projects to expand its activity, to enrich its artistic repertoire, to employ and professionally train people with disabilities: (Click headers for more details)

For the first time in 7 years, the Nalaga’at Theater is presenting a new group of deaf and blind actors. The actors have already started training and rehearsing with Director Offer Amram towards a new theater performance.

The comprehensive work process and future performances involve high costs – as the actors and sign-language interpreters receive full salaries (in contrary to other organizations where people with disabilities receive an adapted salary, Nalaga’at employs equally and regardless of disabilities, with salaries higher than the minimum wage). In addition, the rehearsals process requires very high expenses that are unique to the Nalaga’at Theater: adapted transportation to the deaf-blind actors, personal tactile-sign-language interpreter for each actor, social worker and other accessibility features.

We invite you to join us and take part in the process of creating groundbreaking culture!

Nalaga’at is joining other leading cultural institutes in the world and welcomes you to purchase seats at the theater hall. Upon purchase, a plate with a name of your choosing will be placed on the back of a theater seat. With this contribution you will promise a stage for continuing the creation of groundbreaking culture.

The artistic repertoire of the Nalaga’at Theater currently offers three shows that are targeted for ages 12 and up: “Not by Bread Alone”, “Through the Spirit” and the monodrama “Say Orange”. All of the theater shows provide a unique cultural encounter for the audience that is exposed to the work and talent of deaf-blind actors.

Since its opening in 2007, the Nalaga’at Theater hosted tens of thousands of students and teenagers, some of which even participated in direct meetings with the actors and were exposed to their life stories and to their personal experience as actors on stage. Nalaga’at also offers preparation meetings with educational staff, lesson plans and structured workshops to process the experience.

This experience holds an immense educational value for the young generation, as we commonly witness a change in perspective towards the true abilities of people with disabilities and their great contribution to society. In recognition of that, Nalaga’at offers subsidized tickets to formal and informal educational institutes and to any visitor under the age of 18, to enables the participation of thousands of young people in the theater shows and in other educational activities that the center offers.

The cost of a subsidized theater ticket is 45 NIS (instead of the regular 99 NIS price).

Due to the extremely high and unique costs of operation, Nalaga’at is struggling to fund this project independently and is in seek for partners that are interested in supporting it. We invite you to join us and support the subsidization for youths, and by that to expose them to the unique social and educational contents offered at Nalaga’at.

The Nalaga’at Workshop Center was officially launched in 2014 as an educational method to promote awareness to people with disabilities, to develop new employment opportunities for people with disabilities as workshop instructors, and to strengthen the financial stability of the organization by expanding the variety of activities offered to the public.

The workshops are intended for all populations (young and older students, educational staff, executives and corporate staff and others) and combine a cultural experience with a direct encounter with people with disabilities, personal and group processing of the experience, developing social awareness and leading to activism and social change with emphasis on groundbreaking culture.

All of the workshops are led by instructors with disabilities, professional group leaders and content experts in multiple fields. All of the instructors are professionally trained in house.

Nalaga’at serves in a unique model of integration of people with disabilities in the society and strives to maintain an accessible environment to all of its employees and visitors. According to this principal, the operational budget of the Workshop Center involves extremely high costs of accessibility (in addition to the employment and training costs): adapted transportation for people with disabilities, sign language interpreters, and physical accessibility of the building, psychological and social staff, and more.

The Workshop Center currently offers 10 different professional workshops, and constantly continues to develop new programs and trainings. We invite you to support this unique project that provides employment and professional training for tens of instructors with disabilities, and that creates another stage for equal dialogues with the general public that lead to social awareness.
