Make Art Not War
Graffiti artists turned tattooists, including MED (from Tuff City), are traveling to Sderot, the town bordering the Gaza Strip, as cultural ambassadors for Artists 4 Israel.
While there, they will be painting bomb shelters, turning burnt out buildings into living art installations, and practicing art therapy for children suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. And, hopefully, collaborating on a backpiece. Mine!
Politics aside, this is an amazing opportunity for artists to prove that creativity and unity supersede terror and war every time...even if it is only for a brief, beautiful moment.
These artists are donating their time and the city of Sderot are opening their homes to provide food and lodging for the artists. If you'd like to contribute to the journey, click the link below. Every little bit helps. Bigger bits help more. Who has the biggest bits?
