The Great Flood Collective, or Hamabul, is a community organization that uses art to discuss contentious political and social issues in the Middle East. They recently hosted a workshop for children in Sderot to help them deal with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Your Middle East reports.
“We feared that the poisonous atmosphere will be visible in the drawings, but what turned out what the opposite,” said an activist.
