Echo Eternal is a commemorative arts, media and civic engagement project delivered in schools for children of all ages, inspired by the testimony of survivors of the Holocaust and survivors of 1994 genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda. 

The project brings together diverse communities in a collaborative context, using a common focus of Holocaust memorial and genocide awareness. This focus is supported by the creation of civic alliances between schools with different social and cultural characteristics.

Echo Eternal was launched on Holocaust Memorial Day 2018. In its first year the project was delivered in 12 schools in Birmingham - one of which was Selly Oak Trust School, a founding partner. In subsequent years the project has broadened its reach to other regions and has engaged with hundreds of pupils and their respective local communities. To see the work of other schools, please click here.

We have been a proud, participating school since 2018 and have engaged in many ways through art projects, gallery installations and taking part in the annual Great Get Together. Our echoes are based on the testimony of Susie Lind. To watch our most recent projects please click on the links below.

This year we are looking forward to working with acclaimed dramatist, writer, director and performer Peter Wynne-Willson who will be creating an exciting new echo based on the testimony of Susie Lind.  Please visit this page again for updates on the new project for 2022.
