We’re looking for people of all ages, abilities, backgrounds, religions & ethnicities to join us in our project researching and celebrating the history of Sephardi Jews in England.
We have a variety of volunteering opportunities ranging from performing to researching, contributing stories to interviewing:
One of the main strands of the project is the collection of oral histories from Sephardi Jews in England and Jews who were scattered in other countries. These stories will then form the basis of our interactive website One Lost Stone and be available to listen to via this website. We are looking for:
Learn how to research archival material in museums and libraries and turn that research into material for use in our site-responsive performance and on our website. Training and support will be given.
Assist in drama workshops that investigate this particular diverse history of Jewish diaspora and return. Look at our Bevis Mark Workshops page to see what we’ve already done.
We will be delivering a number of free drama workshops in a range of community settings and schools all over London. These will reveal the many overlapping cultures, languages and traditions that emerged as a result of Jewish expulsion in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. They are open to the curious of all backgrounds, ages, faiths and those of no religion.
We will update our Workshops page as each event is confirmed, and you can subscribe to our mailing list to receive news of availability. We will also be posting downloadable educational resources for those unable to make the workshops.
