On June 15, we will all be able to find out more about the way we think and whether our gender has any bearing on our cerebral functioning. That information will be proffered by Prof. Daphna Joel, chair of the PhD committee and head of the psychobiology program at the University of Tel Aviv, as part of the Art for Children conference.

It will take place at Beit Shmuel in Jerusalem under the auspices of the Holon Mediatheque as part of the children’s section of the Israel Festival. The conference will center on examining the twilight zones between issues relating to gender, gender education and addressing education in children’s art. It will look at ways to enhance awareness of these areas and how teachers, parents and children can correct some relevant wrongs that have taken root in Israeli society.
