This autumn we are resuming our Creative Activists project and are looking for enthusiastic, creative people, aged 16-30 to join us and work with us towards a special event for Holocaust Memorial Day 2023. It’s a great opportunity to meet new people, work with professional mentors and learn new skills, whilst exploring lesser-heard stories from the museum collection.

During this session we will be working on planning our final event during Holocaust Memorial Day in January 2023. We’ll be exploring the stories that we’d like to share and thinking about how to creatively showcase them in the museum space. What is the message behind our event? What will be happening and where? This session will involve lots of brainstorming, so bring yourself and an open mind!

What you need to know

This is the fifth session of our regular creative meetings, during which we will be working with spoken word, textiles, music and performance to uncover hidden stories and explore how Holocaust continues to affect people to this day.

The meetings are informal, with tea, coffee and a welcoming, relaxed atmosphere. Don’t worry if you’ve missed the previous sessions. You can still join us!

The Yiddish word ‘Meshuge’ means ‘crazy’ - a judgment that Smith describes as “so often passed on brave ambitious women that are not afraid to express their opinions and showcase their talent.”
