Day 4: Maurice Blik led by City Academy - 10th January
In partnership with: River Rea Films, Highly Sprung Performance, Gas Street Church.
Day 4 saw a short film about City Academy Birmingham’s pledge and featured a preview of the artwork created for the digital exhibition inspired by the testimony of Maurice Blik.
It included images of the collection for a local food bank at Gas Street Church which they donated to before Christmas and committed to regularly collect for throughout the year.
If you would like to make a donation for the foodbank to support people in need locally during this time you can do so via www.gasstreet.church/loveyourneighbour or you could choose to make your own pledge and donate to somewhere near you.
"In Maurice Blik's name we pledge to share his testimony and help our community with hunger in hard times by collecting food for our local food bank every term, so that our community can eat during a period of unemployment and hardship."
Maurice is a camp survivor. He was in concentration camps between the ages of 4 and 6, firstly Westerbork and then Bergen-Belsen.
After the war was over, he came to the UK with his mother and sister. He is a renowned sculptor by profession.
