Through the establishment of a professional theater company, of deaf-blind actors and, later, a cultural and entertainment center, this first of its kind ‘Cultural cum Social Start-up’ provides severely disabled individuals with the opportunity to achieve artistic expression and find employment, while creating awareness to the deaf-blind in Israeli society and promoting their full integration as equal citizens.
