Nottingham Castle projected the faces of 100 inspiring residents on to the castle walls and the results were incredible.
The project, commissioned in partnership with Nottingham BID, and produced by Vent Media, celebrates the diversity of our local communities – our essential workers, campaigners and creative talents – and the countdown to the castles reopening later this year.
The incredible portraits were taken by Tracey Whitefoot, alongside talented young photographers: Alina Moldovean, Sarah Mensah and Rohan Patel, who worked together to capture photographs of people from their local neighbourhoods.
Watch the full projection below.
Although residents weren't able to see the installation in person this time around, the castle hopes to run the event again in the future once restrictions are lifted. If you didn't know, Nottingham Castle will reopen this year after a gigantic 30 million pound restoration which began in 2018. Visitors can expect an abundance of new exciting features to enjoy upon the castles reopening. A combination of interactive and virtual technology, high-quality art exhibitions and Robin Hood folklore will all be available to be enjoyed.
