Holocaust Memorial Day Trust (HMDT) is seeking 12 groups (one per region or nation of the UK) to create a permanent artwork in their local community which commemorates Holocaust Memorial Day.

In keeping with our theme for this year's HMD, How can life go on?, the artworks created will explore the themes identified for this year's HMD Arts Programme - motifs of absence and the roots needed for life to regrow after a genocide.

The permanent artworks could include sculpture, murals, mosaics, gardens, pathways or structures - there are many possibilities, and we would love a broad range of ideas!

This opportunity is open to all – there is no upper or lower age limit, and we would welcome applications from a range of organisations such as schools or colleges, a local authority, a group of friends, or galleries and museums.

Chosen groups will be required to take good quality photographs and film clips of the work in progress and the final artwork to help HMDT promote the project. Photographs of all artworks will be featured in the programme for the UK Commemorative Event, on HMD websites and will form part of HMDT's social media campaign. 

For more information about this project and details of how to apply please see the documents below:
