Travel and accommodation will be paid by Israel
Top Music blogs - Free trip to IsraelThat email arrived yesterday. The last self-financed visit I made to Israel with my family was informative and enjoyable and hopefully over the years On An Overgrown Path has helped promote the creativity of Israel and the Jewish diaspora - the header photo shows senior Israeli composer Paul Ben-Haim whose Kabbalat Shabbat was given a very rare broadcast by me in a Jewish Voices programme on Future Radio in 2010. There certainly is creative energy in Israel and abroad, but there is also most definitely considerable room for improvement. I wish Kinetis luck with its project but will not be taking part. This article may help explain why.
I stumbled upon your blog while searching the web for top music blogs!
I am contacting you on behalf of an organization called Kinetis. Kinetis is a grassroots organization established to promote the recognition of Israel at home and abroad as a vibrant and inspirational source of creativity and innovation. By educating about and exposing the creative energy of the Israeli environment and people, we seek to enhance global appreciation for Israel's unique contribution, and to revitalize national pride.
The "Vibe Israel" project, which I manage, is an all-expenses paid 7-day tour of Israel we offer to online opinion makers and leaders who write about areas in which Israel has an offering of global relevance. We recently invited a group of Mommy Bloggers to show them the family life, parenting and children aspects of Israeli life, and the response was great (we hosted 3 leading bloggers from the UK and 2 from Spain) and Design bloggers to show them the design scene here.
We are now looking into creating a tour for music bloggers (no specific genres, a taste of different genres) and are doing some basic research to ascertain exposure and relevance of this subject online. Please find attached some more info and a sample itinerary.
If you are interested in coming, please advise the following..
Looking forward to hearing from you,
Adi Kaplan Senior Projects Manager
