ACAT is also proud to serve as a cultural meeting place for the community. As part of our community activities, we hold changing exhibitions in the Center's gallery. These exhibitions are related to the web of life in our region and include ACAT students' work.
"Needle and Thread" Exhibition
Eighteen women from Peki'in meet every Tuesday in an ancient house in the village; together they embroider, knit and preserve traditional Druze works using beads and braided straw. They established the "Needle and Thread," project which strengthens women's status and their ability to earn a living, while simultaneously encouraging tourism in the Galilee.
ACAT is happy to offer them an opportunity to display their works and host their special exhibition that open date: Wednesday, September 25 2019.
Curator: Rachel Zemer.
This is part of the unique "Full STEAM Ahead" program that we operate in partnership with USAID, the United States Agency for International Development.
