Seeking Shelter Late at the Jewish Museum

Hosted at the Jewish Museum, we are delighted to be collaborating with the Museum on this Late event. Presented as part of the Migration Festival programme for the Museum’s Sukkot: Seeking Shelter installation, in partnership with Camden Council.

Explore the Sukkot: Seeking Shelter installation after hours and enjoy art installations, crafts and talks inspired by themes of journeys, migration and shelter.

The programme will start with Lord Dubs speaking about his experience of coming to the UK as a child on the Kindertransport and fighting for the rights of refugees. Artist Bern O’Donoghue will be taking inspiration from the Museum’s collection to create a moving installation of paper boats and Gil Mualem Doron will be inviting participation in his New Union Flag installation. Artist Orly Orbach will be serving up a new piece titled ‘Eat Your Own Identity’, workshops in which visitors will be able to make their own ID cards using gingerbread dough.

As part of love music and spoken word programme Ethiopian singer Haymanot Tesfa will be performing songs of home and poets Edin Suljic and Alev Adil will be sharing their work and refugee experience.

Also, there will be an opportunity to learn more about Camden based EMMA magazine, the publication giving homeless people a voice and to look at the Museum’s objects that have travelled from around the world and to learn the stories of the refugees and migrants that brought them to the UK in a talk with a Curator.
