Scotland Creates Museum Virals Project
Channel 4: Self Portrait UK
Digital imaging and traditional printmaking techniques were used to create self-portraits with a group of 16 – 19 year olds on a BTEC Diploma in Multimedia at Westminster Kingsway College. Eleven of the young people were selected for the Self Portrait UK competition, which was displayed in a touring exhibition and presented at the National Portrait Gallery and on the London Underground.
Partnered by Channel 4, the National Portrait Gallery and Arts Council England, Self Portrait UK invited people of all ages to create and send in their own self-portrait and become part of a major touring exhibition that provided a real insight into the eclectic mix of identities from across the UK.
