PresenTense Institute for Creative Zionism

Our friends Aharon and Ariel want you to know that applications are now being accepted for the Summer 2008 PresenTense Institute for Creative Zionism.

What is PICZ?

The PresenTense Institute for Creative Zionism brings together innovators on the cutting edge of Jewish creativity: programmers and designers, informal educators and rappers, nonprofit managers and biotech visionaries—pioneers with a vision and a portfolio of innovation. Every fellow in the institute is given personal attention and support to bring his or her project into reality.  Through PICZ, fellows are introduced to the best and the brightest of Israel’s hi-tech, social, artistic, and political circles – giving birth to a network of Zionist thinkers and doers: Chalutz 2.0.

PICZ is dedicated to transforming the way the Jewish people think, program and work.  We’re inspired by the vision of Zionist thinkers across the ideological spectrum, such as Ahad Ha’am, AD Gordon and Ze’ev Jabotinsky, who foresaw Israel as the laboratory for the renewal of the Jewish People and the reinvigoration of Hebrew culture.

Applications can be found here. More info is here.
