The Campus includes the following: 

A. The Kirsh Jerusalem Arts Campus 

Downtown Jerusalem provides a broad stage for the performing arts. Four schools have come together in the new Bezalel Street (corner of Trumpeldor   Street) open campus: the Nissan Nativ Studio, the Sam Spiegel School of Cinema and Television, the School of Visual Theater, and the Center for Middle Eastern Classical Music. The campus consists of three buildings with a large courtyard and café which will be accessible to the general public. 


Beneath the campus, a public parking lot was opened in 2020 with 415 parking spaces which will be available for users of the campus.

B. Renovation of Beit Ha’am

The renovation of the Gerard Behar Theater in Beit Ha’am and its conversion into a modern performance auditorium is intended to improve user experience. The auditorium will be the downtown venue to host dance performances and concerts.
