Together we make the City
Jozef, A 23-year-old who used the YMCA to help to turn his life around has been chosen as the Face of Stoke-on-Trent. Jozef Clark, of Hanley, was one of 3,550 people who submitted a picture for the free outdoor exhibition in the city centre. His face is the main, iconic image for the artwork, which is made up of photographs of people from across Stoke-on-Trent.
The People’s Picture – run by award-winning artist Helen Marshall – was commissioned to create the artwork as part of Stoke-on-Trent’s bid to become UK City of Culture 2021.
On Saturday, November 25, a public Face of Stoke-on-Trent celebration event will be held outside the artwork from noon. Residents and visitors will have the chance to speak to Jozef and some of the shortlisted ‘faces’, as well as Helen, photographers, representatives from B Arts, the SOTogether Social Impacts Group, and others involved in the project. A booklet with the featured ‘faces’ and their stories will be available at the event.
