Our Projects

Transformational Events & Parties

We pull together compelling Israeli wine, music, art, and food into a seamless whole that you and your friends and colleagues can dive into, recreating that indescribable vibe of the Creative State at night. Over the last year, we have hosted events in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, New York City, Hartford CT, Cincinnati, and have plans for Miami, Scottsdale AZ, and more. All our events offer unlimited wine, great music, and a variety of event modules including live art (watch as Israel’s leading street artist creates a work during the party), wine tasting workshop with our exclusive sommelier, video creation on site, art auctions, panel discussions and more. On the ground in Israel, we also offer graffiti tours, wine tours, and more. If you’re interested in having TIIF create an unforgettable, transformational event for you, please contact our Director of Outreach, Tatiana Hasson

Hebrew Wallpaper Project

The Hebrew Wallpaper Project is one of our flagship program which aims to create new channels for cutting-edge Israeli artists to connect with new audiences around the world.

The first element is TIIF’s The Artist-in-Residence program. TIIF provides a living wage plus materials and studio expenses to Israeli artists who have proven success in Israel and embody a fresh artistic message. We promote our artists through events, digital campaigns, and publicity, in exchange for the rights to resell their work and related merchandise.

Our first Artist-in-Residence is Solomon Souza, who received international attention for his stunning ‘night gallery’ of Zionist portraits in Jerusalem’s Mahane Yehuda market.

We have a number of original artworks, as well as limited-edition, signed lithographic prints available for sale; please contact our Executive Director, David Hazony if you are interested. 

What If? Studios

TIIF’s video production team operates under the “What If? Studios” label, which works to maximize the impact both Israeli culture and TIIF’s work on its behalf by effectively telling those stories on your screens.  We have now released several different types of videos, with more on the way:

Wine on the Vine videos. As part of TIIF’s mission to connect people with modern Israeli culture, we created a series of 2-3 minute wine videos, discussing Israeli wines, wineries, and wine culture. These videos are geared toward a millennial audience with a face pace, interesting content, and lots of humor.

Street Art videos. We have produced 6-part video series looking at the street art in Florentin, Tel Aviv. Serving as a narrated street art tour brings the best of the amazing Florentin street art scene to audiences around the world. We are also in the planning stages of a full-length project focusing on Solomon Souza, our first artist-in-residence.

Promotional videos for partner organizations. We have made promotional videos for our amutot and wineries. If you’re interested in having TIIF make a video for you, please contact our Director of Content, Michael Hilkowitz.
