Manchester Jewish Museum Cafe
Are you interested in exploring contemporary Jewish Culture? Do you like to share and discuss ideas? Do you want to meet new people and discover new things?
Jewish Culture Club is a free group for anyone who wants to explore contemporary forms of Jewish Culture – this could be books, TV, film, fashion, music, art, theatre and much more! The group is open for anyone aged 18 and over, whether you identify as Jewish or are just curious to discover new things.
This month we’ll be joined by artist Laura Nathan, who is currently undertaking a residency at the museum. Laura Nathan is a contemporary textiles artist and facilitator who explores identity, heritage and wellbeing, resulting in a greater sense of who we are, how we feel and our place in the world.
Laura will share with us some personal objects, including her grandmother’s needle case brought with her when she came to England in 1939 on the Kindertransport, as well as her own artworks, and explore how her heritage has informed her practice.
Please bring along an object that you have inherited and still use in your life today. We will use these objects to spark conversation and consider how our own identities are shaped by our heritage.
