As one of the prominent art institutions in Israel, CCA Tel Aviv-Yafo offers special educational programs for adults and children of all ages. Our educational programs for children come in many forms, and include a bimonthly children’s workshop, and special events. In 2015, recognizing the need for a deeper engagement with our diverse audiences, the Municipality of Tel Aviv-Yafo allocated the neighboring bomb shelter to the Center to be turned into an educational hub. Our expanded educational programs cater to schools, as well as diverse community groups such as teenagers, senior citizens, asylum seekers, and other underserved adults and children. Our hub is a vibrant place of inspiration, provocation, and reflection. Its educational programs for adults and children foster observational and analytical skills, dialogue, and creativity while developing digital fluency. With a special emphasis on our exhibitions, the programs focus on deepening the understanding of contemporary culture, encouraging a passion for creativity and knowledge, and providing unique and enriching tools for self-expression. For many of the participants and attendees, this is the first encounter with contemporary art exhibitions and such event is pivotal in the development of a visual language that will follow them in their future engagement with the creative fields and in life in general.

SATURDAY KIDS LAB
A bimonthly 90-minute workshop led by CCA Tel Aviv-Yafo Educational Manager Eden Bannet for children ages 6-10 on Saturday mornings, in Hebrew. It includes a tour of our current exhibitions, guided screenings of works from the Video Archive and a hands-on creative activity for small groups. The workshops are designed to encourage discussion, independent thinking, active exploration and creative experimentation, inspired by the fascinating encounter with Israeli and international artworks.
CCA Tel Aviv-Yafo presents seven-to-ten exhibitions per year and each of them is accompanied by tours in Hebrew, Arabic and English. The aim of our exhibition tours is to make the work of the artists we exhibit accessible to our diverse audiences – aficionados as well as newcomers; all of which share a strong passion for cutting edge art that benefits from a discourse that comes from within the field itself and nurtures it. The presence of tours in three languages allows for a more inclusive experience, generating meaningful connections to the multicultural identity of Tel Aviv-Yafo and to the many communities residing in Israel.
THE RYWKIND BEN ZOUR GRANT FOR ART, EDUCATION AND COMMUNITY
“The Rywkind Ben Zour Grant for Art, Education and Community” at CCA Tel Aviv-Yafo was initiated by the Center’s Board Member, Iris Rywkind Ben Zour, together with her spouse, Eran Ben Zour, includes an annual donation of 100,000₪ and is intended for the Center’s annual exhibition program and related events and activities that emphasize education and community. This is a new and unique project that invites art students to the front stage by participating in mentoring sessions with the artists exhibiting at CCA and taking an active part in the making of their exhibition. In addition to that, the Grant will support master classes, talks, workshops, lectures, meetings, discussions, round tables, panels and special educational programs that appeal to a variety of communities ranging from school students and graduates to teenagers and adults.
