Founded in 2011, Creative Community for Peace (CCFP) is the only organization focused exclusively on countering the cultural boycott of Israel. The organization is comprised of prominent members of the entertainment industry who are devoted to promoting the arts as a means to peace. Launched with a Cutting Edge Grant in 2013, Creative Community for Peace has quickly grown from a local response to the cultural boycott of Israel into an international network supporting hundreds of artists who perform there. With a Next Stage Grant, Creative Community for Peace will be able to plan for their continued growth and extend their reach within the entertainment industry.
