ICA cordially invites you to a unique evening where you can get "the bigger picture" of  a delicate subject through an exhibit featuring drawings and knitted items by cancer patients and survivors, who have agreed to provide a window to the world of their experiences, as  participants in ICA activity conducted in classes offered within their community. Individuals dealing with cancer face multiple challenges, and these patients and survivors have chosen drawing, art and painting as a way of coping with them. 


ICA Exhibition


This is the chance to see, touch, hear and feel the personal process which these patients and survivors have undergone in their drawing or knitting classes, in the past and at present, all the while referring to their choice of drawing tools, choice of color, and mainly the connecting thread between them.


Likewise, at the exhibition, you will have the chance to hear a fascinating lecture on "Causes and implications of sleep disorders in adults and methods of treating them", to be delivered on a volunteer basis by Prof. Tamar Shohat, of the University of Haifa, who specializes in this field.


Several ICA branches were involved in the launching, planning and logistic arrangement of this special event: the Kiryat Motzkin Branch, led by Mr. Motti Dagan, the Kiryat Bialik Branch, led by Mr. Sammy Benisti, the Strong Together Center in Haifa, led by Mrs. Nechi Faingold, and the Kiryat Shmuel Branch, led by Shimon Ben Yishai and the volunteers of the ICA Northern Branches.


Admission is free (both for the exhibit and the lecture) and we would be delighted if you would share this invitation among family, friends, acquaintances and colleagues.


This is a wonderful opportunity to thank the Mayor of Kiryat Motzkin, Mr. Haim Tzuri, for sponsoring this event, and for believing in us throughout our collaboration, as well as the Manager of the Community Eshkol Payis, Mr. Shimon Ben Yishai, for his unique contribution.  Kudos!
