Rei Dishon grew up in Haifa where he was active in the Scouts, first as a child and later as a counselor. After serving in the IDF as a troop commander he worked at Camp Tawonga as a counselor, later on as a unit head and finally as head of the Israeli teen delegation at the camp. In Israel, Rei studied at H.I.T (Holon Industrial Design), specializing in social and sustainable design. Rei is a former recipient of a full scholarship for the prestigious international five weeks workshop in Boulder, Colorado, called, Surfing the Creative. He also received a full scholarship for a four month international art residency at Fondazione Pistoletto in Italy where he exhibited for the first time as a professional artist. These days Rei works as a freelance artist, designer and social entrepreneur and he often works on projects that bring together these three components. Rei and a few friends recently launched a pop-up art exhibition called, "value: place." The four-day exhibit was held in a former print factory in South Tel Aviv. The artists used as much of the materials they found in the space as possible to examine the concepts of the "value" of people’s lives through their “place” or work. Rei will continue the discussion about this exhibition through his blog.
