Over the past year sound artists Linda O Keeffe and Louise K Wilson have worked with Holocaust Centre North on a commission for a set of ‘audio guides’, Encountering Survival. The audio guides invite visitors to reflect on our collection and community, but also draw attention to those things that are not there – those materials, stories, atmospheres, and memories that are absent, lost, destroyed or impossible to archive.

Through close work with our collection, our survivors, and their families, Linda O Keeffe and Louise K Wilson have mediated sensory memories and object histories into immersive soundscapes.

Join us for the launch of our first artistic commission, meet the artists, and share your thoughts with us.
