Self-Portrait UK


People of all ages are invited to communicate their individuality and creativity by producing their own unique self-portrait to present themselves as they want to be seen, using digital imaging, photography, painting, video and other more traditional art forms to present themselves as they want to be seen.

This is the first initiative to emerge from Channel 4's 'Creative Cities' strategy in the North East.

Produced by Media 19, and supported by Northern Arts and the National Portrait Gallery.
