Brooklyn Philharmonic Orchestra’s Klinghoffer Dialogue Project

The Brooklyn Philharmonic Orchestra’s Klinghoffer Dialogue Project used opera to engage the people of Brooklyn in dialogue on the effects of tensions between Israelis and Palestinians on their community.

Three preproduction dialogues hosted by the Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture were designed to provide a safe, moderated place for the public to explore issues of identity, nationalism, and the roots of violence within the context of the conflict in Israel and Palestine, as addressed in the opera. In addition, a postproduction dialogue provided a chance for all who participated in the series to express reactions to the production itself.

In partnership with the Animating Democracy Initiative of Americans for the Arts (www.americansforthearts.org/animatingdemocracy/), NCDD’s Leah Lamb researched arts-based civic dialogue programs in order to help dialogue & deliberation practitioners strengthen their work by linking it to the arts. NCDD hopes these resources will inspire you, and encourages you to connect with the artists, many of whom are interested in working with D&D practitioners.
