On September 8th, 2011, An Art Exhibit of Children's Drawings Was Banned By The Children's Museum in Oakland ( MOCHA). Much of this artwork was drawn by children participating in MECA's "Let the Children Play And Heal" Project. “Let the Children Play and Heal” gives tens of thousands of children and youth in Gaza opportunities to express themselves though art, dance, music, story-telling, theatre and puppetry; to get support from the larger community; and to have fun and just be children. It was developed to address the needs of traumatized children after the 2009 assault on Gaza and provide much needed pyschosocial support.

This short video piece showcases the banned drawings.
