Israeli Art Comes to You: Healing From October 7

Tuesdays January 23 - January 23
5:00pm Pacific Time | 8:00pm Eastern Time
Event Details
In this month’s class, we’ll learn how art has helped heal Israeli society and bolster support for Israel in the international arena.

The October 7th massacre and the war between Israel and Hamas that followed have brought a wave of artistic reactions and activism by Israeli artists, locally and internationally. In this lecture, we will view and discuss such varied artistic responses, which have also bolstered Israeli advocacy in the international arena.

Instructor: Sagi Refael
