Light It Up! in Galilee

Light It Up! in Galilee

The mission of Moona, A Space for Change, is to create a better socio-economic reality in the northern periphery of Israel by bringing together mixed communities around advanced technologies. Founded by Asaf Brimer, a former pilot in the Israeli Defense Force who served in the country’s aerospace industry for six years, the center brings together Arabs and Jews in the Galilee region to foster interpersonal collaboration and understanding and promote regional economic growth and development.

Rebeccah Pailes-Friedman brought the Light It Up! workshop to Moona, guiding local Jewish, Muslim and Bedouin youth through the process of creating a customized piece of wearable technology: an LED-powered pin. Students created their own design, sewed the pin body and then programmed attached LEDs to light up in specific patterns. As a hands-on example of how easy it can be to sew, use electronics and start creating code, the workshop demonstrated the way fashion draws on disciplines from art and design to STEM.
