Past Project


Aug 2020


A new mural created by art collective LOCI alongside local skaters, and overseen by Ben Borthwick – Head of Creative Programme at KARST – transforms the hoardings around Plymouth’s Civic Centre.

LOCI are a Plymouth based artist collective specialising in exterior and interior murals. With a focus on community and collaboration, they develop mural projects with organisations, artists, individuals, community groups and companies across the south west of England.

The designs – created by LOCI in collaboration with the city’s skating community – are covering the hoardings on Civic Square and Royal Parade.

The project, led by sector support organisation Plymouth Culture, is part of the preparations for the launch of the Mayflower 400 programme on 16 September 2020 – the date four centuries ago when the ship sailed from Plymouth.

This initiative has been made possible with the support of Urban Splash, City Centre Company, Mayflower 400, Plymouth Culture and Take a Part.
