Our museum groups are a great way to connect with people, learn new skills and have a great time while engaging with history and culture.

Whether you’re a foodie, a crafter, a culture vulture or a budding song-writer, we’ve got the perfect activities for you.


See below for details of our different groups and how to get involved.

Creative Activists workshop, 2022

Creative Activists

Our Creative Activists are a group of young people seeking to create powerful acts of sharing and connection with our local communities to help make a positive difference in the world.

In 2021-22 they were working with Manchester Jewish Museum as part of Imperial War Museum’s Second World War and Holocaust Partnership Programme, to explore creative ways of commemorating the Holocaust and connecting these stories with our local communities.

In 2021 they worked with writer Nicola Baldwin and facilitator Kate Bradnam to create ‘Alone But Together’, telling the powerful and moving stories of Frieda, Esther and Lily. These stories were edited by StoryFutures Academy and were part of a touring installation with Imperial War Museums, which came to Manchester Jewish Museum in January 2023.

In 2023 they co-curated “We Remember Them In Verbs”, the museum’s reflective programme of events marking Holocaust Memorial Day. Over the course of four days, visitors could see a new exhibition, participate in a baking workshop and watch performances, like the one below, written by the Creative Activists themselves and performed in our historic synagogue:
