The Israeli National School Cultural Program encourages informed viewing of art forms and aims to train students to become informed patrons and fans of high-quality culture in their adult lives. The program is integrated into the school system from kindergarten to 12th grade, operating during school hours, to ensure the attendance of the majority of students.
Through the program, students view various types of artistic performances in a gradual, multi-year process. Each performance or presentation is accompanied by educational activities, including preparation in advance and reflections after each viewing.
The IACC's partners in this program are the Ministry of Education and local authorities. The program is currently operated in over 110 local authorities.
