My Millennium – Throwback to year 2000

Twenty years ago, Quay Arts organised an ambitious project to fill the building with self-portraits of a generation of children. As with many things we’ve done over the years, it started small (with a 10 x 10cm template) but as schools got on board and drawings, paintings and prints came flooding in, it grew to such an extent that the resulting exhibition, My Millenium, ended up in the Guinness Book of Records as the largest collection of self-portraits ever, with 13,626!

Were you one of the thousands of children who took part? Do you recognise yourself in any of these photos? Comment below your memories of the exhibition! 💭
