The photos are of natural, urban and human landscapes, attempting to reflect a variety of voices of cultures, religions and nationalities that exist side by side in Haifa.

Supporting Publication of Periodicals

Haifa Arts Foundation encouraged publication of literary anthologies by familiar organizations such as the Haifa Association of Writers, in order to allow local writers, especially those at the beginning of their way, to publish personal works in a scope that does not allow for publication of a full-scale book. Sometimes, the Foundation itself referred striving writers to the editors. In addition, the Foundation assisted in the publication of journals whose staffers were from Haifa, while the writers, poets, painters and sculptors whose workes were published were from all over the country.
