Artists 4 Israel took graffiti artists from America, Europe and Israel to the Israeli city of Sderot to work with children and the community at large. Sderot, the target of continous missile attacks from Hamas, has erected bomb shelters all over the city. Closets, bus stops and children's playgrounds have become blast proof in an effort to fortify against missile strikes. The artists spent three days performing art therapy with children who have post traumatic stress disorder as well as cover the city's numerous bus stop/bomb shelters with paint. This is a highlight reel visually demonstrating the power of the project on Sderot and the Israeli community at large.
