Mike is the driving force behind Plymouth Artists Together; identifying sites, seeking funding, urging the talent to change the visual aspect of their community. In this, the first of a two part podcast, Mike tells us about his journey and how he uses his unique negotiating skills to provide spaces and materials to bring change to unloved and overlooked spaces in the city.
