LOUD FOUNDATION, Supporting Arts and Culture, logotype

Loud Foundation mission is to create and promote extraordinary projects and innovative partnerships in art and culture. We are open to new collaborations that will develop the art market and make culture accessible.

"Art should ask questions and bring harmony. Art defines humanity, and humanity is inseparable from its own past. We want to accept the past, seek in it the answers to today’s questions, analyze the stories told and write future ones on the basis they provide, and art is without doubt the best tool for this".

TEL AVIV

REGARDING... GODDESSES

Regarding…  Goddesses 
International Arts Festival — cover art

An international interdisciplinary festival of contemporary culture, which once a year reconsiders and reinterprets classic subjects, iconic characters, famous images and timeless meanings. The main events of the festival comprise their own original premieres such as productions and exhibitions, shown for the first time in Tel Aviv. Every year the festival presents a theme that answers a number of questions relevant to modern society, here and now.

It is generally accepted that God is male, and that it is He who has universal dominion, strength and power over everything that exists and which, moreover, was created by Him — nothing can slip away from His keen and severe eye. The theme of the Festival in 2021, Goddesses, will refer to questions such as how and by whom is the power of woman limited? Does power have gender? Who are today’s goddesses?

REGARDING... SHAME

Regarding…  Shame 
International Arts Festival — cover art

Regarding… –– is an international interdisciplinary festival of contemporary culture, which once a year reconsiders and reinterprets classic subjects, iconic characters, famous images and timeless meanings. Shame is the second theme of the Festival.

Shame is an acute and painful feeling that typically develops into suffering and is prompted by thoughts of “improper” behavior. Shame is a complex and multifaceted emotion that has haunted mankind throughout its history, and yet talking about it is not considered seemly. This shame makes people think that their whole being is something reprehensible. A sense of shame is often based on the opinions of others or the attitudes of society. These emotions are destructive and can cause serious harm to the individual.Art often raises issues that are uncomfortable for discussion. Shame is precisely the kind of topic that demands turning inside out and looking at from a different angle.

REGARDING... FAITH

Regarding…  Faith 
International Arts Festival — cover art

Regarding… –– is an international interdisciplinary festival of contemporary culture, which once a year reconsiders and reinterprets classic subjects, iconic characters, famous images and timeless meanings. Faith is the third theme of the Festival.

We all believe in something or somebody. Even though we barely need facts to support our beliefs. The belief becomes a knowledge, which moves us either forward or down. Faith unveils such a great energy that generations of people based on it war conflicts, created new countries and discovered new territories, explored cosmos or destroyed lives. What are you ready for the sake of your faith? The festival edition of 2023 is to explore the history of beliefs and what is faith in the contemporary world, how it is evaluated throughout the centuries.
