We The People Are The Work is a major visual arts project that explores ideas of power, protest and the public.
The project builds connections between the people of Plymouth and six internationally acclaimed artists from the UK, Canada, France and Mexico to the city, all of whom have created new artworks inspired by Plymouth's heritage, its people and their aspirations for the future.
Peter Liversidge's work brings together the ideas and voices of a range of individuals. These are used as the inspiration for a series of placards that you can see being made in the Council House. The placards represent ideas from diverse people in the city and give significance to voices that often go unheard. They will be spread around the city, used in a ritual burning in the bonfire on The Hoe on 5 November and in a special Closing Day Party at the Council House on 18 November. Liversidge will also have a temporary public artwork on the flagpoles on The Hoe in October and November.
We The People Are The Work is presented by PVAPG (Plymouth Visual Art Programming Group), a partnership between The Gallery at Plymouth College of Art, KARST, Peninsula Arts at Plymouth University, Plymouth Arts Centre and The Box, Plymouth. It is part of Horizon, a collaborative two-year programme of visual contemporary arts, funded through Arts Council England’s Ambition for Excellence fund and led by Plymouth Culture.
