In celebration of the UEFA EURO 2020 Football Championships, the streets of London will be transformed by thousands of photographs of Londoners, starting June 13th.
Over the course of two weeks, our Photobooth truck will be visiting 5 locations to paste more than 3,000 black and white portraits.
From key workers to school children, all will be invited to paste their face on roads and buildings across the city. This Action honors Londoners and all those who have made a difference in their communities over the past year. As the city recovers, the Mayor wants as many Londoners as possible to be part of the Action to generate excitement and showcase London’s diversity.
This year, London will be hosting eight matches during the Championship, including both semi-finals and the final. This Action along with a series of temporary outdoor exhibitions complements the Mayor of London’s Let’s Do London campaign, which is encouraging Londoners and visitors to come back to the city and take advantage of London’s public spaces and cultural riches.
A number of schools, grassroots organisations, hospital staff, community champions and volunteers have already been photographed in preparation for the installation at Tower Bridge. Londoners working or living close by to the locations will also be invited in advance to book to have their photo taken as part of the project.
Please find instructions on how to join this Action below.
The Truck will first visit a gallery longer than two football pitches on the road across the famous Tower Bridge. It will then go on to four further locations where hundreds more faces will be displayed on pavements, roads and buildings in celebration of London’s diverse communities, football and its ability to bring people together.
The Action will go on to reimagine Granary Square in King’s Cross with more than 400 faces, the Bernie Grant Arts Centre in Tottenham with 200 faces, Lewisham Town Hall in Catford with 300 faces and in the Royal Docks 420 faces will appear on to the Royal Victoria Dock wall and surrounding footpath. A special exhibition of portraits will also take place as part of the Wembley Park Outdoor Gallery and the Outside Art project at Kings Cross.
