A project to reflect on 75 years of Liberation, and the cultural impact that it has made on the local community.
The Guernsey Arts Commission is proud to present Liberation 75: Freedom Not Forgotten, a community project to create a public exhibition. We would love to see pieces submitted for this commemorative event, which will become the St Peter Port town exhibition trail. We are asking you, the community, to create the artwork which will tell a story about our past, present and future in our home islands.
As is well documented, the Islands of Guernsey were occupied by the German forces for the majority of the Second World War from 30th June 1940 until their peaceful Liberation on 9th, 10th and 16th May 1945. Research can be done via internet sources, the Guille-Alles Library, the Priaulx Library and in our local museums around the Island, as well as talking to family and friends and observing and reflecting on our islands today, 75 years after our Liberation.

Deadline for entries will be Sunday 8th March, with the public exhibition to follow mid April.
