Workshop in Israeli Hospital
posted: January 16, 2007
Here's a report from Israeli TV about one of the Workshops I conducted with Cancer patients in September 2006 in Israel. (thanks again to Roche for sponsoring them!) This one took place in Haifa. For those of you still not totally fluent in Hebrew, people are refering to their actual looks, or explaining why they chose specific objects. One of the participants chose to make a portrait of Hassan Nassralah, who was a very popular choice in my workshops this past summer. (As the Art Therapists explained, it is always easier to deal with the external enemy). You can also watch the Head Nurse of the department who made an amazing self portrait. Following the workshop we held a small round of 'show and tell' where everybody talked about their portraits and the elements that composed them. It was a heart warming experience for all of us and I hope you can get some of the feeling even without the language.
