Manchester Jewish Museum



Join our Creative Activists project and help us develop an original performance for Holocaust Memorial Day 2023. It’s a great opportunity to meet new people, work with professional artists and learn new skills, whilst exploring lesser-heard stories from the museum collection.

We are exploring how the Holocaust continues to affect people today, and the different ways in which people remember, whether it’s through writing, baking, performance, or textiles. Holocaust Memorial Day takes place on Friday 27 January 2023.

In this session, we will be finalising the performance with actors and artist Becky Prestwich. There will be an opportunity to discuss set design, props and make any adjustments to the script.

What you need to know

This session is part of our regular creative meetings, during which we are 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 and be a part of our final event in January 2023!
