Do you love to craft or sew? Would you like to take part in a creative community project which aims to promote respect and understanding between different communities? If your answers is Yes!, we’d love you to join us and be part of Echo Eternal Horizons Festival 2022. Echo Eternal is a commemorative arts engagement programme inspired by the testimony of British survivors of the Holocaust and survivors of 1994 genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda. Last year FOLIO was partnered with Holocaust survivor Dr Agnes Kaposi and across 2021 we interviewed her, wrote poems inspired by her, created light in the darkness by projecting some of Agnes’s words and ours on the Town Hall, donated new books about the Holocaust to Sutton Coldfield library and shared monthly snippets about Agnes’ life. In the run up to Holocaust Memorial Day this year we invite you to join us and create an individual patchwork square in response to the Agnes’s testimony, drawing on the Holocaust Memorial Day 2022 theme of “One Day”. The patches, 15cmx15cm, can contain any images, words or thoughts you think appropriate in regards to your response to Agnes’s testimony. You can include found items, such as buttons, scraps of material or items found in nature. We encourage the patches to be made from recycled materials. You can work at your own pace at home creating a square, or you can join us at one of our sew-a-longs. You can use your own materials, or we can provide you with materials, thanks to our wonderful partners on this project, the Up Creative Community.

24 25 26 27Sutton Coldfield before Veysey - a talk by Dr Andrew WatkinsSutton Coldfield before Veysey - a talk by Dr Andrew WatkinsTime: 19:30 - 20:30
Sutton Coldfield before Veysey – the fortunes of the town of Great Sutton in the later middle ages. New research using a range of documents not previously employed by historians provides fresh insights into the foundation, growth and fortunes of the town of Great Sutton in the later middle ages. This has focussed on the role of the earls of Warwick in its creation, the importance of the market and fair, the local economy, occupational diversity and piety. Andrew Watkins studied under Christopher Dyer at the University of Birmingham and is an Honorary Visiting Research Fellow at the Centre for English Local History at the University of Leicester. He retired as Head of Sixth Form at Lichfield Cathedral School in 2016 after thirty years of school teaching. He has published numerous articles on society and economy in the later medieval Warwickshire Arden, with a special focus on its small towns and their interaction with their hinterlands. He is editor of Warwickshire History. Please book your free place at this online talk here: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_2ERUmxb8TbyE-_zoEp1p_Q
