Electricity Garden District
Gan Hachashmal district (Electricity Garden in Hebrew) has undergone many shifts and upheavals over the years: from a prestigious residential area in its early days to a prostitution center, and into a vibrant, artsy and creative center today.
On the tour we will get to know the area's history and visit the people who work and create in it: hear the story of designers and the people behind the concept shops that make the neighborhood. We will see spectacular historical buildings and hidden street art.
What is the connection between the neighborhood's name and electricity? Who is the oldest store in the district and how does the third generation adapts it to our contemporary reality? How does a small ceramic studio succeed in the age of mass production? And how does a huge old telephone exchange turns into a hostel that is also the hottest place for art in the city?
Come and get to know one of the most interesting and least-visited neighborhoods in Tel Aviv.
