TRAILBLAZING OUR NEW MUSEUM
Manchester Jewish Museum is re-emerging and transforming. In the lead up to our reopening on Friday 2 July 2021 join us for a taste of what’s to come in our trailblazer programme of digital events, sneak peeks and unique experiences.
Join us as we re-imagine the museum, reset the conversation, and reconnect with the stories of Jewish Manchester from our collection. As we look ahead to our long-anticipated reopening this summer, we can’t wait to welcome you into our new museum so we can continue to connect, share and make positive change.
In the meantime we continue to work with incredible artists as they activate our archives through music, drag, food, theatre and art as they question what are the stories we need to hear right now.
Previous trailblazers have included: a high-camp drag quiz night with cabaret artist Chanukah Lewinsky; intimate conversations with female music artists on the frontline of the UK Jewish music scene; young activists’ responses to keeping past stories alive for Holocaust Memorial Day; and a culinary taste journey through our collection with Theatre Chef Leo Burtin.
Upcoming trailblazers will be featured here. We are living through extraordinary times and being connected has never been so important, so let’s take hold of this time to reimagine – reset – reconnect together.
More events coming soon.
