We The People Are The Work is a major visual arts project in Plymouth that explores ideas of power, protest and the public.


We The People Are The Work is a major visual arts project in Plymouth that explores ideas of power, protest and the public.

The project will build connections between the people of Plymouth and six internationally renowned artists through structures that involve people living in Plymouth in generating the ideas and artworks in the exhibition alongside the artists.

Venues across the city ranging from Plymouth City Council’s Council House to the city’s public galleries will be animated by a series of new commissioned artworks that explore our engagement with politics and identity. In the wake of recent global events - from Brexit, to the election of Donald Trump as the new president of the United States, to the recent UK general election - the exhibition explores both the shared experiences and social differences that shape our society and our aspirations and fears for the future.

The Exhibition Launch on 22 September starts at Peninsula Arts and will progress to the other venues on foot, finishing at KARST. Free, RSVP to contact@wethepeoplearethe.work
