One of the recently announced projects that will take place during the Birmingham 2022 Festival, GENERATIONS, is on the look out for four and five generation families.

Presented by GRAIN Projects and Multistory, GENERATIONS celebrates families, individuals, diversity and the people of Birmingham and the West Midlands in large-scale photographic portraiture. Based on the format of the family portrait, photographer Julian Germain will use a large format camera to work collaboratively with families of four and five generations from across the region. The photographs will be displayed in largescale formats throughout the Birmingham 2022 Festival.

The first project of its kind in Birmingham and the Black Country, four and five generation families are invited to take part and to be photographed for exhibition during the Birmingham 2022 Festival, a six-month celebration which will spotlight creativity and culture in the West Midlands as part of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

Photographer, Julian Germain is seeking to work with four and five generation families from across Birmingham and the Black Country. If you and your family are interested in taking part and being photographed contact [email protected].

The group portraits present people at different stages of life; new-borns, infants, children, teens and their parents, grandparents, great-grandparents and great great-grandparents. Fundamental questions are raised that relate to us all; life, death, time and the effects of time, where do we come from and where will we go?

Running from March to September 2022 as part of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, the Birmingham 2022 Festival will feature hundreds of creative commissions across the region including art, photography, dance, theatre, digital art and more.

GENERATIONS is generously supported by Arts Council England and National Heritage Lottery Fund.
