One year ago, the Society of Jerusalemite Musicians initiated the ‘Console’ project, connecting over 50 poets and musicians in Jerusalem. At first, poets and writers worked side-by-side in a writing workshop, emerging with a series of poems. These were put to music by a selection of composers, who transformed the texts into songs – which were performed, recorded, and gathered into a compilation album.

The Dojo, a multidisciplinary art center in Jerusalem, took the project one step further, incorporating visual artists who illustrated the various songs – giving each one a visual interpretation. The result is Hand Me Down, a collection and exhibition of poems and images printed using a unique technique, engaging all senses with the combination of imagery, music and poetry. Perhaps the final stage of this project has yet to be seen, if someone inspired by this multidisciplinary collaboration decides to take it yet another step forward.
