THE TELAVIVIANS | SHACHAR COTANIby Dalit Nemirovsky | 28.08.12
Shachar Cotani is one of my Telavivians. He is 29 years old and lives in Tel Aviv with his partner Nina. Shachar is a Campaigner and Graphic Designer at Blue Collar and BigEyes Design Agency. In addition, he is one of the founders of the Citizens Division at the Likud Party, who’s goal is to enlist 15,000 civilians to the party in order to change the balance against what he calls the Neo-Liberal, Anti-Democratic forces which now dominate there. Shachar is also a prominent activist in the Israeli Social Justice Movement that emerged last summer with massive protests that took over the country and Tel Aviv in particular. Shachar’s latest action which brought him to nation wide recognition was his post on PM Netanyahu’s Facebook page declaring a Like War against the PM’s latest economic Plan. Shachar won.
Shachar and I met about 2 years ago when he joined BigEyes Agency – the Graphic Design company I have been working with on most of my projects. We have been in touch ever since, even sharing the same work space these days. Seeing Shachar on a daily basis, I can definitely say he is one of the young Telavivians who is actually working towards change.
Shachar is one of my Telavivivans. I asked him to point out his. Shachar’s Telavivian will be coming soon..
