Olive Trees Exhibition

Date: Monday 18 September 2017 - Sunday 24 September 2017 (On display during Cathedral opening hours)

This exhibition features a series of 13 paintings inspired by the understanding and the commitment of 35 Israeli women from all cultural and religious backgrounds: Jewish, Muslim, Christian and Circassian, reflecting the diversity within Israeli society. The chosen theme was The Olive Tree and through their passion the artists created an environment of tolerance, friendship and sharing. The exhibition has travelled throughout Europe and  been seen at significant locations including The European Parliament and the United Nations.
