Neta is an Israeli artist and social activist. Born in Kibbutz Givat Haim, at age 15 he moved to Jerusalem to study at the prestigious Israeli Arts and Science Academy (a boarding school). Neta spent his high school years in India, at the Mahindra United World College. After graduating he moved back to Israel, settling in Jaffa, where he opted to do National Service. He began by working at the Sadaka- Reut Arab Jewish Youth Partnership, a nonprofit that promotes coexistence and social justice, during which period he ran educational programs at a number of different Arab and Jewish institutions and schools in Jaffa, south Tel Aviv, and Bat Yam. After two years of community grassroots activity, Neta, together with a small group of Arab and Jewish artists, organized a a cultural center in the Ajami neighborhood of Jaffa. The Jaffaite Youth Center was a home for tens of young artists who used the platform as a base for conversation and cultural exchange. Out of this grew a multilingual hiphop band called System Ali. Three years later the band established an organization called Beit System Ali, to support the educational and cultural activity of its members. For the past decade Neta has been a lead singer and accordionist of the band, and artistic directer of the nonprofit Beit System Ali. He also works as a youth counselor, teacher, and group facilitator at various institutions and NGOs. In his artistic work, Neta investigates language as a reflection of identity through music, poetry, dance, and theater.
