Exciting start to Your Name Here

Back to News

Your Name Here launched last week and it’s already catching the imagination of St Heleners.

The project conceived by artist Joshua Sofaer is encouraging the people of St Helens to get involved in an interactive public art competition. Patrick Fox of Heart of Glass, said: “We’ve been truly overwhelmed by the response to Your Name Here.  Artwork and nominations have been coming in thick and fast since the launch on Thursday.

“With workshops, school packs and community events we are hopeful to keep the momentum going over the next six weeks. Your Name Here has already received a broad range of nominations, the competition will close on June 26th and then the judges will have the unenviable task of picking a winning name that will be etched St Helens history.”

Applicants from anywhere in the world can enter online at www.winyournamehere.co.uk, by post, or in person by 26 June 2015 and there are workshops planned in St Helens to spread the word.
