Discover the diversity of Jewish music and meet some of the emerging stars of the UK Jewish music scene through a series of digital films in What Does the Future Sound Like? as part of our Trailblazer season leading up to our 2021 reopening. Watch the films on our YouTube channel.

Over summer 2020, we paired up members of our Artists Network and asked them about how they use archives in their own work. The result is a joyous, touching and intimate collection of short filmed conversations made from home.
