Art Forest Artists Residency (AFAR)
The five-star Carmel Forest Spa Resort, which is part of the Art Forest initiative, is located in a gorgeous natural setting you wouldn't expect to host a residency program. The program intends to forge connections between realms that ordinarily do not converse with one another: artists, the spa resort guests, and the resort staff who are also involved in the project. The artists are welcomed to work in this exceptional setting and to provide talks and seminars.
The endeavor is a crucial component of the Isrotel hotel chain's campaign to support Israeli contemporary art. The program is successfully running for more than five years and hosted the state of the art Israeli contemporary art practitioners.
