Description: 

Founded in 2011, Creative Community For Peace mobilizes Hollywood music executives and pop artists to counter the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement (also known as the BDS movement) against Israel and to promote a positive image of the country by partnering with high profile Hollywood executives in one-on-one meetings, informal briefings with high profile public figures; and music salons; and establishing a strong online and print media presence to create a distinctive circle of influence where industry insiders educate their artist friends and clients who, in turn, educate the general public about Israel.

Grant Quote: 

"The Foundation’s Cutting Edge Grant recognizes our successful behind-the-scenes efforts to reach out to industry executives and artists, as well as fans across the globe through our social media platforms, to educate and counter the misinformation disseminated by the boycott movement against Israel."
