WILD WALKS PROJECT
“Wild Walks” Israel recently started as a Jerusalem based project to support youth and teens who arrived to Israel after Russia started the war. Wild Walks is helping teenagers from Ukraine, Russia and Belarus.
The project’s aim is to help these young men and women adapt to the new country (at times they hesitate to leave their hotel or host), culture and own the urban space around them by creating a community. Living through different experiences, working on art (collage, animation, storytelling, poetry) together, playing and talking to learn more about themselves, to make friends and have an easier time adapting in this new reality. It is important for the project to provide a safe space for teenagers to create their OWN world with their own places, friends and activities in this new country, city and world in general.
