KAMPI was established following a long-standing discourse and joint work between independent creative bodies and artists in Jerusalem with the aim of promoting the dance and creative scene in Jerusalem. Campi is A new collaborative fund established at the initiative of three leading independent dance organizations in Jerusalem - the KTMMON Dance Group, an entire dance between heaven and earth that will enable economic cooperation between the bodies.
The vision of this initiative is based on the collaborative model on which it is based, a model that enables the unification of resources, an increased sense of belonging and community empowerment - values that the dance community needs today.
The cooperative bank consists of three circles- Partners, beneficiaries and supporters who deposit membership fees, while the partner community will receive grants for projects such as research budget, professional advice, production of new work and more.
By matching the gifts and services to the three circles, we can enable services and content relevant to each of the groups. Together - we will strengthen the sense of belonging and create an innovative vision for the independent Jerusalem dance community. KMPI is open to all who want to strengthen the community and benefit from it. The KMPI account will be managed In a sustainable bank - a sustainable association.
