Plymouth Podcast with Richard Ward: Mike Vosper (Part 1)

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.

Mike Vosper is a force of nature. When you meet him, you see a quiet, unassuming man, but behind the façade there sits someone with the resolve to facilitate, curate, promote art within his community as a force for good, a force for change.

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.
