I’m contacting you from Big Ideas, we’re a community engagement organization who run creative commemoration projects for regional participation. We have a new project we thought you might be of interest to you. It’s a really lovely project and a great creative activity for groups to take part in. I have outlined some information about the project below.
Foundation Stones is a unique project that asks you to paint a commemorative stone to be placed within the foundations of the new UK Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre. You and your group are invited to paint a stone in remembrance of the six million Jewish men, women and children murdered in the Holocaust and all other victims of Nazi persecution. You can also choose to dedicate your stone to those murdered in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.
Each Foundation Stone will represent a commitment from communities across the United Kingdom to learn from the past and to build a future free from all forms of prejudice, discrimination and hatred.
I’ve attached the digital resource pack for you to have a look at. This has all the information about the project as well as a how-to guide.
If you think this is something your group would be interested in, please do let me know. Also please do feel free to share my details with anyone you think may want to get involved. Looking forward to hearing from you!
