Face of Liberation
Send us your face, be part of the story.
part of the official celebrations of Liberation 75, ArtHouse Jersey has
commissioned ‘The People’s Picture’ to create one of the most ambitious pieces
of participatory art Jersey has ever seen.
We asked all Islanders to send selfies, or pictures of their
friends, family and ancestors up until 15 March 2020. The photos sent to us will form a mosaic which will form the
‘face of liberation’ and become a symbol of our community today. The artwork will be revealed later in 2020.

testimony, or reflections gathered from friends or loved ones. It could perhaps have been about an inspiring moment
on a previous Liberation day celebration.
