International art project unites hearts and cultures

“Let me show you my world” is a unique art project that is connecting SHEKEL artists with artists from Germany’s Diakonie NGO, for people with special needs. The project was initiated with the idea of creating meaningful personal and cultural ties between people with disabilities from both countries. Following a visit of the SHEKEL delegation to Germany last May, the German delegation spent a week in Israel this March, getting to know their Israeli counterparts. The delegation participated in art and music workshops, visited sites in Jerusalem and throughout Israel, and visited SHEKEL apartments.

 

The joint project is the fruit of a broad cooperation framework established between SHEKEL and Diakonie that is aimed at sharing ideas and information in the area of special needs.  The residents of Diakonie live in a rehabilitative village, but as a result of the SHEKEL-Diakonie cooperation, the German NGO has begun opening apartments in the community, based on SHEKEL's "Living in the Community" model.
