THE ONE CHAIR PROJECT : A Chester people project
YOU HAVE UNTIL WEDS 12th NOVEMBER @10pm
The Chair is waiting… It wants those who are, skilled of mind, brave and independent enough to change things up, and folks who just rock! -People who deserve recognition for their cultural and forward thinking contributions to the city of Chester.
And it’s up to you the people to nominate them for being who they are.
They could be: musicians/social media peeps/chefs/artists/designers/hairstylists/event – organisers or just great and amazing characters that the city just couldn’t do without.
The final 20 will be photographed by photographer: Sam Ryley – (www.samryley.com) in his studio and upon the completion the faces of these culture icons, and great Chester characters will be presented to Chester and the world.
Chester struggles with its identity. We want the people working away behind the scenes to give the city more than just the Roman heritage (blahblahblah)- To be recognized and rewarded for pushing to bring a vibrant, fresh, MODERN popular and even alternative cultural scene.
WHO DO YOU WANT TO NOMINATE?
Names/reasons will be collected on the Twitter page @OneChairProject
Give the name and reason why they should be included
If you do not use twitter you can nominate via message or post on on facebook.com/samphotofilm
Yes there are rules. There has to be because this is open to a certain amount of abuse otherwise.
- NO SHAMELESS PROMOTION – Some of the people nominated will undoubtedly own businesses… this on it’s own is not enough. They must affect the city itself in a positive way. If we catch a sniff of anyone trying desperately to get in this for the wrong reasons… you’re out the door.
- NO SELF NOMINATING… yes there are people out there with egos that big and we don’t want you. Sorry
- ONE NOMINATION per person.
When all of the names are in the hat he will then be helped with the selection by three more judges (TBC) to add a diverse set of opinion – and narrow the list down to the deserving 20.
note: The photographer will not invite people – Sam has taken himself out of the process to make it unbiased – You choose
Lets’s see who ends up in the chair!
