Community environmental sculpture workshops
Gili Eshel – Community environmental sculpture workshops, is a company with 15 years of experience working in education, art and sustainability in public and community spaces, in Israel and abroad.
The framework of community, artistic creation and sustainability themes all form the core values and practices standing at the base of the shared community workshops.
The heart of our work is to empower children, teens and adults through active participation in creating environmental sculptures and structures.
Based on our experience guiding hundreds of workshops and the thousands of participants joining the creation, we can say that community sculpting affects children and teens and instills a sense of empathy and commitment to their environment and encourages pride and closeness with each other. Strengthening the bond between youths and their living environment will bring in turn a significant decrease in alienation and vandalizing of structures in the public space.
