Uprising – Songs of Resistance starts at the close of Yom Hashoah (Holocaust Remembrance and Heroism Day) on Thursday 8 April at Memo Music Hall, celebrating the power of resistance. Featuring an incredible line-up including Paul Kelly, Julia Stone, Deborah Conway, Paul Grabowsky, & Sophie Brous, Harry Angus, Emily Lubitz, Shane Howard & Ernie Gruner, Kee’ahn, Arnold Zable, Jess Hitchcock, Maria Tumarkin and the Djirri Djirri Dancers. Uprising invites people from all ethnic and cultural backgrounds to celebrate resistance to racism, fascism, antisemitism through song and story. Artists and audiences gather to remember the Holocaust and celebrate ongoing survival and activism.

Yom Hashoah marks the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. In 1943, prisoners of the Warsaw Ghetto courageously took action and held off Nazi troops for almost a month. They saved thousands of lives before they were overpowered.

FOJAM is honoured to be presenting Uprising: Songs of Resistance conceived by The Museum of Inherited Memories and curated by Siân Darling.  The descendant of Holocaust survivors,  Darling sees storytelling and song as the sharpest tool to honour ongoing survival and resistance to racism, fascism and antisemitism.

Together we will remember and pay respect to the courageous and creative battles against racist and antisemitic crimes.

Uprising will be held as a live concert as well as live stream for those who cannot make it in person.

Limited tickets available to MEMO Music Hall to watch the show live. Tickets on sale Thursday 11 March, 10am. All ticket buyers for the live show will also receive the Live Stream link to watch the show again for a limited time
