Meet the Artist  
Jul 28 – August 2, 1 – 2 p.m. @OMA
Moderation: Alan Bern YSW Artists

This year, the Festival Week promises to be something very special: the world’s most prominent Yiddish artists will be premiering their original and unique projects in Weimar. But who are these artists once they leave the stage? What makes them tick? Why do they do what they do, and where do they see themselves within the tradition? How do they see the future of the “Yiddish Republic”? How do they find the sources for their work, and how do they create new art based on an old tradition? Our “Meet the Artist” evening is your chance to meet the artists of Yiddish Summer in an informal setting, and to tap into a discussion that may lead anywhere. Join us for an authentic and inspiring exchange between audience and artists, moderated by festival director Alan Bern.
