Artists in the Archives

Over summer 2020, we paired up members of our Artists Network and asked them about how they use archives in their own work. The result is a joyous, touching and intimate collection of short filmed conversations made from home.

OURS AND YOURS

MUSEUM COMMUNITY

We have a growing community of artists, song-writers, textile enthusiasts, local residents and cultural and community partners.

Our song-writing group is for anyone interested in music. We write songs together inspired by the unique and yet universal stories of Jewish Mancunians in the museum’s collection.

Our textile group comprises women of all faiths and backgrounds. Currently midway through their newest project, the group are creating a large-scale textile piece to be hung in the new museum.

Our community groups are a great opportunity to meet other people to share stories and cultural traditions – and we are always looking for new members.
