Feeling threatened by the success of the Creative Community for Peace, Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) has launched its own initiative.
From their website
The Jewish Voice for Peace Artists and Cultural Workers Council is a
leadership body of 40 acclaimed poets, rock singers, cartoonists,
painters, actors, playwrights, novelists, filmmakers, computer
programmers, musicians, dancers, performance artists, and other cultural
Inspired by Jewish activist and artistic traditions, the Council is
made up of Jews and allies who represent a broader network of hundreds
of influential and talented artists and makers.
Our work for a just peace in Israel/Palestine needs artists and
cultural workers to help us envision more just and possible futures, not
simply what is politically “practical” in this moment.
In a political discourse that feels polarized and poisonous, artists
are a powerful antidote. Art compels us to question, invites us to
memory, provokes us to act.
The "acclaimed" members include at least 2 (Morgan Bassichis, then known as Daniel, and Micah Bazant ) who showed their commitment to open discourse by interrupting a celebration of art, music and learning at the San Francisco Jewish Community Center in 2008.
None of these "acclaimed" artists and cultural workers are exactly household names.
