East Jerusalem Department - Jerusalem Municipality

East Jerusalem Department

​The Department of East Jerusalem was established in 1995 in order to initiate, enable and encourage the cultural life in East Jerusalem.

​Today the Department is responsible for the events for the Arab population which include concerts and performances, plays, exhibitions, quizzes, literary evenings, tours, holiday events and conferences.

The arts and cultural activities for the Arab population take place within the framework of the regional councils and the cultural centers in East Jerusalem.
Activity is focused within six community councils (about 20 Arabic neighborhoods) in which the Department operates cultural coordinators to implement the goals.

In addition, the Department is responsible for running classes, workshops, courses and lectures for adults, particularly in East Jerusalem.
