Requests for Proposals & Tenders (Bids) for Cultural Projects in Jerusalem

This is a list of tenders (מכרזים) and requests for proposals (קול קורא) published by the Jerusalem Municipality and other organizations for participation in the city’s festivals and events as well as other cultural projects.

What are “michrazim” and “kol kor’im”? 

A michraz is a contract advertised by the iriya/government which anyone is welcome to send a proposal for. It can be for anything from architecture projects to managing a website.

A kol koreh is a call for people to apply to participate in different projects in the city. For example, there might be a kol koreh to be one of the artists at the Light Festival (I am not sure if there is).

Please note: This list may not be complete and it is important to check the original web pages for up to date information. Also, please email me ( if you find michrazim or kol korehs which are not included in this list. Thanks!
