Thousands of selfies wanted for Liberation 75 project in Jersey

Thousands of selfies are wanted to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Liberation.

ArtHouse Jersey has already had over 100 submissions for its project 'Face of Liberation'.

Launched last week, it aims to create one large face made up of up to 10,000 smaller ones of people who live in Jersey now and in the past.

The 1,000 square foot piece will be pulled together by British artist Helen Marshall, known for her mural of the Queen which was displayed at Gatwick Airport in 2013.

Alongside their pictures, people are asked to comment on what freedom means to them in 2020.

Once complete, the mural will be positioned outside in St Helier for six months. The stories and the pictures will later be archived for posterity.

ArtHouse Jersey will also be sending photographers into the community to capture those who may not be online. Community groups who would like to get involved are asked to contact them.

You can upload your photo on ArtHouse Jersey's website. The deadline for submissions is 15 March 2020.
