    Beit Hagefen, located in the Wadi Nisnas neighborhood, was founded in 1963 as a pioneer in the field of intercultural dialogue. It is a nonprofit organization that strives to establish equalitarian and shared spaces that contain the diversity of identities and cultures in Israel and worldwide.
    Their professional team has extensive experience in developing and implementing programs that engage with intercultural dialogue for a broad range of audiences.
    It will serve as the epicenter for the events, alongside the Louie Promenade, Ben-Gurion Avenue, Wadi Nisnas neighborhood and churches in the city.
    In honor of the festival, a route-based interactive family-friendly game will be launched as well.
