The Complete Hero London Projections take place from 4 - 10 November 2009. Complete Hero explores and celebrates contemporary ideas of heroism with contributions from men and women of the Household Division, from the public, and from writers, thinkers and performers.

The project is the new public art work from Martin Firrell (‘London's most prolific public artist' International Herald Tribune).

The Guards’ Chapel – destroyed in WW2 during Sunday morning worship in 1944 and rebuilt in 1963 – makes a poignant backdrop for this exploration of the meaning and value of heroism in our lives.

November’s projections onto the Chapel's exterior will present text, lighting effects that honour the Chapel's modernist architecture, and video interview extracts. The Complete Hero projections will be free for all to view and represent an historic first: the first collaboration between a public artist and the historic Guards’ Chapel site where the first service was held in 1838.

Below, you can contribute your own ideas about heroism, its meaning and importance to our times, to help inspire the final form of the 2009 London Projections.
