Building Bridges Between Young Israelis and Palestinians Through Music

This video news item featured on follows a group of young Israelis and Palestinians recording an original track and making an accompanying music video to explore issues relevant to their lives and experiences.

With the help of Point Blank and peace organisation Windows for Peace, they learnt new skills, enabling them to apply their talent and imagination to bring about peaceful change through the power of music.

More than just working together on a creative project, the group also lived, ate and shared every moment of their lives for a two-week period. The resulting music video shows young people in the region and the rest of the world, that communication with the ‘enemy’ is not only possible, but desirable and fruitful.
