The Face of Stoke-on-Trent - Together we make the city

The Face of Stoke-on-Trent - The People's Picture

Together we make the City


Jozef, A 23-year-old who used the YMCA to help to turn his life around has been chosen as the Face of Stoke-on-Trent. Jozef Clark, of Hanley, was one of 3,550 people who submitted a picture for the free outdoor exhibition in the city centre. His face is the main, iconic image for the artwork, which is made up of photographs of people from across Stoke-on-Trent.

The People’s Picture – run by award-winning artist Helen Marshall – was commissioned to create the artwork as part of Stoke-on-Trent’s bid to become UK City of Culture 2021.
