About this Speaker
Shaan Knan works as Heritage Project Manager for Liberal Judaism. He currently runs the Lily's Legacy Project. He believes in the power of sharing stories and has been documenting and showcasing community oral histories for the past eight years. Creating archive collections is another one of his passions, because preserving heritage for future generation is incredibly important. His various collections are deposited at the London Metropolitan Archives. Shaan loves working cross-sector and cross-communities and has an excellent track record of running equality and diversity projects with partners including The Jewish Museum London, The Faith and Belief Forum, The Wiener Library, UK Universities including New Buckinghamshire and SOAS and numerous community groups. He is grateful to have been given the opportunity to execute - so far - four very successful projects that are hosted by Liberal Judaism and supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund. He feels inspired by having worked with such an amzingly skillful and wonderful team on the Lily's Legacy project and its outputs.
