Explore the power of art making as a tool for personal and collective renewal! On Passover we gather together with family and friends to tell the story of the journey to freedom. Every year the themes of oppression and liberation resonate in new ways and the unsuppressable energy for renewal surfaces like the growth emerging from dormancy at the cusp of a new season.
