This inspirational photographic exhibition is named after a unique project of the same name under the auspices of Givat Haviva, a non-profit educational institute in Israel. The project addresses the need for open channels of communication between Israeli Arab and Jewish youth who rarely, if ever, have an opportunity to meet one another. They visit each other’s homes and communities under the guidance of an Arab and a Jewish facilitator and use photography as the basis for exploring questions of identity and co-existence. This exhibit highlights a selection of the works created by students who participated in “Through Others’ Eyes” during the academic year. In the summer, “Through Others’ Eyes” youth travel to New York for three weeks, where they participate in a Peace Camp at Camp Shomria, and special programming in the New York City area. At the Puffin Cultural Forum’s gala opening reception, 16 group members will be present to discuss their photographs and life-changing experience.
Displayed regular gallery hours through August 2.
