Imagining the Other Through Art

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Photographer, video artist, printmaker, and former dancer, Leona Strassberg Steiner has lived half her life in Israel and half in the United States. In this session we will explore different ways that we may open our hearts and minds to imagine the other (Palestinians, refugees from Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan). We will begin our journey by examining some art pieces Leona has created to help us see and accept the other as ourselves. We will then explore the other using different techniques; meditating on openness, and seeing how we ourselves can be seen as the other. If time allows, we will create collages of our experience. No art knowledge is required for this session; the only thing you need to bring is an open heart and mind.
