Neta lives in Jerusalem, Israel. He was born in Beer Sheva and grew up in Omer. After a meaningful service in the IDF and several years traveling abroad, he moved to Tel Aviv to study philosophy and psychology at Tel Aviv University. An interest in deepening his knowledge of the history of ideas brought him to the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, for a master’s degree in philosophy, where he wrote his thesis on conceptual spaces that enable shared creativity and collaborative improvisation. In 2011 he followed this interest in creative spaces and communities from theory to action, by co-founding Empty House, an artists collective. Neta, as a member of Empty House, and as artistic manager of other projects, has been leading large innovative urban projects ever since. He is co-founder and CEO of HaMiffal, which he established in 2016. HaMiffal (Hebrew: the Factory) is a unique grassroots urban renewal initiative that transformed an abandoned building in central Jerusalem into a cultural hub for community life, art, and a meeting point for people from diverse backgrounds. HaMiffal hosts a rich array of artistic workshops, lectures, music performances, film screenings, and cultural events on an almost daily basis. The walls, rooms, and corridors serve as spaces for artists to produce and exhibit their works. The open, creative venue invites and inspires the public to become not just consumers of art but creators, crumbling boundaries between public and private spheres and facilitating the exchange of ideas across multiple identities and communities.
