The people of West Norfolk are being invited to take part in an arts project that aims to light up iconic buildings around Lynn.

French artist Halida Boughriet wants to hear from local residents who will be featured in a “selfie”.

The focus for her installation on the Greyfriars Tower will be human interaction and performance and, to create her light show, she is seeking 10 people who will be filmed under a light pretending to whistle or blow.

Elizabeth Nockolds, cabinet member for tourism and marketing, said: “This is a great opportunity for people to engage with this project and to become part of an art installation that will launch on March 27 and be shown throughout the year. I hope people of all ages will come forward.”

To nominate yourself, all you need to do is take two ‘selfies’ – one face on and one side profile and email them to project office by February 6. Successful nominees will be chosen at random.

The filming will take place on 11, 12 and 13 February and successful nominees will be notified of the details.

The festival is being funded by the final portion of £400,000 EU funding which has been used to cement relations between West Norfolk and the French town of Amiens over the past two-and-a-half years.
