The Project – The People’s Visual History of the 1973 FA Cup.
The project will celebrate under-represented aspects of heritage relating to Sunderland’s historic 1973 FA Cup win. This occasion is one of the most significant events in the history of Sunderland, reaching beyond the usual football boundaries and affecting the whole community in an outpouring of civic pride and pure joy.  We will collect visual material (re-photographing photographs and memorabilia) that reflects upon the personal experiences and emotions of the people who were there, both the regular Sunderland fans and others who were engulfed by the euphoria of the event, so that those experiences may be shared with younger generations and documented for the benefit of future generations.
The project is led by NEPN and University of Sunderland with lead artist Julian Germain and key partners including A Love Supreme, Foundation of Light, Back on the Map, The Cultural Spring.
