A Season of Trailblazers

Manchester Jewish Museum is re-emerging and transforming. In the lead-up to our historic building’s reopening in Spring 2021, we present a season of treats and sneaky peeks. Come and re-imagine a museum, reset the conversation, and reconnect with the stories from our collection that are bursting to be told right now. As we all re-awaken from our experiences of 2020, we can’t wait to welcome you back over to ours to connect with each other to make positive change.

Our incredible artists are activating our archives through drag, sound, food and theatre, questioning what stories we need to hear right now. Get ready for a rollicking high-camp drag night with Chanukah Lewinsky, musical conversations about radical ways of thinking and living, our Creative Activists showcasing creative responses to Mancunian Holocaust experiences, literally eating our way through the archives with theatre chef Leo Burtin and exploring our own journeys by walking back in time together though Redbank and Cheetham. There’s no time like the present or will be again, so let’s take hold of this time to reimagine – reset – reconnect together.

Our monthly trailblazers are tasters of what’s to come in our new weekly Thursday Lates events series when the museum re-opens.
