Since 2014, UCL Hebrew and Jewish Studies have worked with artists to create outreach projects, ranging from performing long-lost cabarets written by Holocaust victims to creating brand-new musicals about the inventors of colour film. Here, some of the artists and academics involved will talk about how working together has shaped their work, share their processes for combining creative and artistic goals, and present extracts from their new musical, Man and God. Reflecting on half a decade's work, this event demonstrates and explains the benefit of collaborations between academics and the arts.
