Welcome to our Creative Activists 2023-24 project!
Join our Creative Activists and help us programme a museum open day for Holocaust Memorial Day 2024. It’s a great opportunity to meet new people, work with professional artists and develop creative skills.
During our weekly meetings we will be delving into stories from our museum’s collection related to the Second World War and the Holocaust. We will be exploring how the Holocaust continues to affect people today, and the different ways in which people remember, whether it’s through writing, baking, performance, or textiles. You will have the opportunity to learn about the lesser-heard stories from the museum’s collection, and use those stories to inspire social change through art and activism.
No previous artistic experience necessary. Just bring yourself and an open mind!
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
The project is aimed at anyone aged 18 to 25, who is interested in arts, activism and creating powerful acts of sharing and connection with local communities.
We meet at the museum every Wednesday at 4pm.
Don’t worry if you haven’t been to our introductory session, you can join the project at any time!
