On Tuesday 18 September 2018 the newspaper supplement Future of St Helier was printed in 14,000 copies, inserted into a daily edition of the Jersey Evening Post and distributed island wide. The visual content was produced by A-Level photography students at Hautlieu School as part of the Masterplan Community Arts and Education Programme in collaboration with Archisle: The Jersey Contemporary Photography Programme and sponsored by Jersey Development Company and Camerons Limited.
Students were challenged with responding to specific areas, streets and neighbourhoods divided up along the urban vingtaines of St Helier and to explore through research, archives and photography the built-environment, urban living, diverse communities, town planning, land use and re-generation projects. Each student designed a 16 page zine and a page spread was chosen and then split in half producing a fragmented image reflecting on the nature of experience and diversity of St Helier, the capital of Jersey in the Channel Islands.
The Masterplan community arts and education project has given young people an opportunity to use photography as a tool to communicate how they feel about the future of St Helier and the images presented here are intended to engender a renewed debate in the States of Jersey and its various stakeholders in working towards delivering a sustainable and vibrant vision for the island’s capital and its citizens who either live, work in or visit St Helier.
In the autumn of 2018 the newsprint will be transformed into a 40 meter long outdoor installation on the hoarding of the construction of the International Finance Centre on the Esplanade in St Helier, kindly sponsored by Jersey Development Company, Camerons Limited and MJP Architects.
