Echo Eternal Youth Festival

Birmingham Town Hall, Victoria Square, BIRMINGHAM, West Midlands, B3 3DQ
Echo Eternal Youth Festival

About

To mark Holocaust Memorial Day and as part of the two-year anniversary of Echo Eternal - a commemorative arts, media and civic engagement project – on 28 January 2020 Birmingham's CORE Education Trust is bringing together professional artists and over 450 students from across Birmingham and Coventry to perform and share their commemorative responses to the testimonies of Holocaust survivors.

For the second year running, CORE Education has been successful in securing a National Lottery Project Grant from the Arts Council. This year the funding will pay for the Echo Eternal Youth Festival which will run over a three-week period across Birmingham and Coventry in January and February 2020.

The 2020 Echo Eternal Youth Festival will include live performances at Birmingham Town Hall on Tuesday 28 January 2020, an exhibition at St Paul’s Church Jewellery Quarter and another at Coventry Cathedral, both from 20 January to 10 February 2020; and local community events across Birmingham and Coventry – led by local schools taking part in the project.

Echo Eternal uses the power of art to empower local young people, enabling a conversation around the atrocities of the Holocaust, and through this, tackling ongoing challenges of persecution and cultural differences in today's society.

Broadcaster Natasha Kaplinsky interviewed 112 Holocaust survivors for the programme and 450 students from across eight Birmingham and six Coventry schools have worked with artists throughout the project's second year to create their response to these powerful testimonies: eternal echoes. The 2020 festival will see the culmination of all their hard work, with the wider community, local dignitaries, government officials and Holocaust survivors invited to attend in commemoration and in support of the young people and local artists taking part.

The students will take part in the performance, which will consist of newly commissioned music, dance and spoken word tributes as part of a live event at the Town Hall – as devised by Coventry's Highly Sprung Performance Company and the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.
