Connecting stories, art and activism
Creative ActivistsChallah Bake and Introduction



Learning Kitchen



This June we are relaunching our summer Creative Activists Programme, starting with a workshop, during which we will be baking challah bread together and discussing how we can creatively share stories, using art and activism.
In this workshop we will introduce the project, it’s aims, and what we will be exploring through our summer drop in workshops. It’s a great way to get involved for people interested in art, music, textiles, history, or museums, as the project will encompass different themes. No prior knowledge or experience is needed, just book your free ticket and join us!

About the Creative Activists

Our Creative Activists are a group of young people seeking to create powerful acts of sharing and connection with our local communities to help make a positive difference in the world. They will be working with Manchester Jewish Museum as part of Imperial War Museum’s Second World War and Holocaust Partnership Programme, to explore creative ways of commemorating the Holocaust and connecting these stories with our local communities.

In 2021 they worked with writer Nicola Baldwin and facilitator Kate Bradnam to create ‘Alone But Together’, telling the powerful and moving stories of Frieda, Esther and Lily. These stories were edited by StoryFutures Academy to be part of a touring installation with Imperial War Museums coming to Manchester Jewish Museum next year.
