We are an entertainment industry organization that represents a cross-section of the creative world dedicated to promoting the arts as a means to peace and to countering the cultural boycott of Israel.
We may not all share the same politics or the same opinion on the best path to peace between Palestinians and Israelis. But we do agree that singling out Israel as a target of cultural boycotts will not further peace.
We understand the power that our music, our films, our television shows, and all arts have. Art and culture create civilizations and are essential ingredients in the human journey, critical to the well-being of society, to building trust and understanding, and to healing. We encourage artists to participate, rather than shun, to express rather than suppress. If anything, turn up the music, expose our art to wider audiences, and encourage people from all cultures to interact, communicate and inspire peace and understanding. Don’t Boycott. Build Bridges. Instill Hope. Create a Better Future.
