This chapter describes a program initiated in 1992 that brought together Muslim and Jewish researchers to document the cultural assets of their communities in Jerusalem. Though this work did not materialize into a Folklife Festival program, it laid the groundwork for several innovative and ongoing projects. The author chronicles the project’s ethnographic phase in the early 1990s, the cancellation of the Festival program in 1994, and the continuation of the project as a university course and study tour. She interrogates the notion of parallel self-determination as a methodology and demonstrates the complexity of curating in zones of conflict.
