This year we worked with Birmingham Opera Company and Autin Dance Theatre to explore how to bring our survivor testimonies and echoes to larger public audiences and spaces. On the 25th and 26th January 2023, students from across our Echo Eternal schools performed at Birmingham New Street Station. The performances were open to all.

As part of the week-long Horizons Festival, we also offered an online talk with Peter Lantos (Holocaust Survivor), Anti Semitism symposiums delivered in partnership with UCL’s Centre for Holocaust Education (delivered by Ruth-Anne Lenga and Arthur Chapman) and country wide public exhibitions of Echo Eternal via film and artworks.
