JTalk – Artist Joni Brenner on Marigold: ‘we are all in one spirit here’

Following the service on Shabbat mornings, Beit Emanuel hosts an interesting and informed speaker on a thought-provoking topic. Sessions start at approx. 11.15 am.

7 May – This week’s JTalk is about the five year collaboration between artist and art critic Joni Brenner, a member of our congregation, and a struggling beadwork co-operative in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. The women, living in an area of massive unemployment, produce beaded jewellery which has become a high fashion item both in South Africa and abroad. This is a story of how the struggles of a poor community can be turned into a creative success.
