Demonstration film!

As part of the opening weekend of our exhibition ‘Efford the Capital of Culture for Plymouth’ hosted by Plymouth Arts Centre we held a demonstration march through Plymouth City Centre asking for more and better arts practice within the city.

The starting point for the march was a letter by Crazy Glue member Elisha asking for more art within the city to reflect the opportunities she has had in Efford.  Socially engaged practice is at the heart of the Take A Part process and Elisha’s letter highlighted the good work within Efford and people’s desire for more opportunities to engage.

Following the initial asks in this letter artists Sophie Hope and LOW PROFILE worked with people over the weekend to develop a manifesto.  The manifesto focused on a series of points around how people engage within art and creativity and addressed some of the changes they might like to see within the city. 

At the end of the march the manifesto was delivered to two of Plymouth City Councillors who would like to discuss points raised in the new year.  This film, shot by Hana Backland in collaboration with Magic Hour, shows the march, including the build up to the event over the weekend.
