Through Others’ Eyes

For over 20 years Givat Haviva has been offering Through Others Eyes, convening a group of Arab and Jewish youth from the region for a year-long program in which they get to know each other and learn about each other’s lives, using photography as a vehicle to explore and express the complex realities they discover.

Every year, roughly 20 participants meet in classes and seminars to learn photography and culture, visit and photograph each other’s homes, mount a year-end exhibition of their work documenting their significant journey together, and emerge to a follow-up program as youth leaders with lived shared society experience.
