Jewish Arts and Culture Ireland (JACI)

NEWS / 21 December 2022

JACI is delivering a varied and unique programme this year to students in Stratford College Dublin that covers a range of artforms and aspects of culture including poetry, literature, language, oral history, music, visual art, and heritage. Students are being offered the opportunity to explore Jewish culture and heritage in Ireland, in a hands on way, and learn how it can help us to gain a better understanding of Irish culture as a whole. The programme encourages cross cultural exploration, adaptation, and exchange.

One element which kicked off in December is an intergenerational memory/culture project involving elder narrators from the community being interviewed by students from Stratford College which will culminate in an exhibition in the school in March next year. Incorporating aspects of reminiscence, oral history, life story transmission, creative writing, photography, videography, exhibition and museum studies, the output will ultimately serve as a practical and vital memory archive of an ageing population.From the students' perspective they are getting the opportunity to develop their critical skills, media literacy, collaboration, listening and team work, along with practical technical skills and the experience will feed into their history, CSPE, English, Art and Film making studies.

Note: Jewish Arts and Culture Ireland (JACI) is a sub-committee of the Jewish Representative Council of Ireland, and is focused on fostering and supporting the arts relating to Jewish culture and heritage in Ireland.
