Do you love to write? Or have a passion for music? Then join our song writing group!

Our Song-writing Group meet fortnightly to work with amazing composers, singers, writers and musicians to create new music and poems inspired by the stories in our collection.

We use stories from the museum’s archives and from our own lives as inspiration to write songs and poems together.

In this session we will be exploring the song we started writing with artist Kitty Martin about Annie’s story and her links to the 1874 Spanish and Portuguese Synagogue.

Don’t worry if your new to the group, we welcome anyone who wants to get creative, both beginner and seasoned pro, to write, sing and learn more about stories from the museum.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
The group will include refreshments such as tea and coffee. Feel free to bring along an instrument if you would like to.

This group is ongoing, so we may be working on songs and performing them across the year.

If you have any questions about the group, please email Gemma on: gemma@manchesterjewishmuseum.com

In this session we will be working on a beautiful panel exhibition of textiles that respond to Jewish Mancunians experiences of the Sabbath. We will also be talking about the year ahead and what future exciting projects might await! These spaces are very much about collaboration and co-creation, where your ideas and direction help shape what gets made.
