“I ask for you to recognise Hilde’s light, to be a light for yourself, and to be a light for others.” Rosy, Creative Activist.
In our latest Trailblazer, a group of young people aged 16-18 became Creative Activists as they explore and share stories to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day. Inspired by real life stories past and present, they created a powerful act of sharing and connection that considers how we learn from history whilst looking to the future.
Responding to this years’ Holocaust Memorial Day theme, ‘Light the Darkness’, the 9 activists from King David High School have been uncovering stories from our archives, their own family histories and from speaking to Cheetham Hill residents.
Using these stories they each created their own commemorative artworks, filming their process and telling the stories behind each piece. These sculptures and films were then gifted to community partners from Cheetham Hill in an act of sharing and passing on these stories and celebrating those lives.
