Windrush Legacy Project – Family Portrait Announcing: From our family to yours…

Wanda Nation is launching the largest family portrait project made up of all your amazing family photos!


This artistic project is part of the Legacy activities of the Radiate Windrush Festival to celebrate the many descendants of our Windrush Generation. We’re setting the goal to display what a great big family, community and legacy looks like and why we are here to stay.

We’ll be bringing together all the submissions into a large scale collage piece that will be displayed over the 2 day Radiate Windrush Festival. The portrait will consist of your crowdsourced family photos which will share real and remarkable images of our families over the years between 1948 – 2019. The Family Portrait will show that despite the ups, downs and years of migration, displacement and disruption, the family structure of the Windrush community has stayed strong.

The Windrush legacy project will be working to produce lasting artistic contributions to be included in our creative spaces across the UK. The artistic mandate of the project is to ensure that we continue to see our black communities in an unbroken positive light.
