Portraits of pandemic stalwarts to go on show at Quayside Festival

NOMINATIONS are being invited for the People Mural Project which will feature large portraits of local people who have helped others during the pandemic.

The portraits will be pasted-up during the Quayside Festival in Bridgwater on Saturday, July 10.

The project aims to highlight people who would not normally be recognised.

All nominations will be considered and orgnisers are hoping to represent a wide spectrum of things that people have done, from the practical to the creative all the way down to the smallest but meaningful gestures of solidarity, from friends and strangers.

Nominations to be sent to thepeoplemuralproject@gmail.com by Tuesday, July 6.

Nominations should include:

  • The name of the person
  • Why they are being nominated
  • Your relationship to them
  • Contact details for them and you

Photographing the portraits will be arranged from July 7-9 and all nominees and the people who nominated them will be invited to paste-up the portraits themselves on July 10.

Organisers Andrew Jeffery and Irena Hubble-Brezowski said:  We have seen a wonderful amount of support across communities whilst actually seeing very little of each other. Much of the help people give to each other we would never know about.

“We think it’s important to highlight what people have done, and continue to do, through sharing these stories publicly and making them visible. Through these portraits we want to celebrate people and what they can do together and for each other.”
