Keepsakes of the Kindertransport/Holocaust creative art book project
In lockdown we have had to find more creative ways to work together and learn. This project is a way to use the time to reflect, revisit and share stories and experiences with each other. Creating individual pieces, that will be joined with others in a collaborative art book, is a way of staying connected, feeling part of the community, connecting locally, nationally and internationally with one another. The project is open to members of the Second and Third Generations (Kinder, Holocaust survivors and refugees) around the world. The deadline is the end of December 2020.

How to get involved:
Create your own reflective piece/s and email it/them to Caroline: email
Size: Maximum for each piece – A4 – 210 × 297 mm or 8.3 × 11.7 inches.
Materials: any drawing, painting, written words, quotes, mixed media, collage, and copies of photographs and documents. Anything two-dimensional, as all pieces will be collated to make a handmade art book.
