In the new wing, spread across an entire floor, are activity stations for exploring familiar questions and new aspects about identity and belonging in a multicultural society. Visitors are invited to get involved in the content and adapt it to their own unique story. This is an opportunity for an encounter with experiences, memories and stories, some familiar and some completely new, about ourselves and about others.
All the works In the Third Space’s permanent exhibition are related to the concept of Home which serves as an anchor for identity and belonging. Here you will find a kitchen cabinet filled with surprising objects you won’t find in your own kitchen, a living room with a floor made from all kinds of spices, where you can sit and listen to the story of the Moroccan Cinderella or look through the window at graffiti about Haifa’s myths by the group Broken Fingaz. Participants are encouraged to join in and add their own commentaries and stories. In the Visual Identity Lab, designer Roni Levit tries to understand Haifa through incidental data and subjective interpretation. Cinema -this viewing space features a variety of films dealing with language barriers, prejudice and the frustration resulting from the cultural and language gaps that prevent us from properly deciphering messages and intentions. Square- the steps of the square are used for resting and as an informal meeting place. In the square, artist Davi Barel has created an environment that connects residential buildings in Haifa with dream-like faraway landscapes. Workshop- workshop where you can learn about the traditional crafts of different cultures in the local sphere.

The activities in the Third Space are modular and diverse and combine work in the various spaces with experiential tours in Wadi Nisnas. We offer continuing education courses, seminars, tours, workshops and conferences, and we will be happy to help tailor the content and activities to your group’s needs.
