Local artists LOW PROFILE are inviting hundreds of people who give their time to benefit others, to come together on Plymouth Hoe for a one-off, flash-mob style event.

Image of original PEOPLE event

40 years ago, Plymouth Guild of Community Service celebrated the city’s volunteers with hundreds gathering on Plymouth Hoe, standing together to make the word PEOPLE with their bodies. LOW PROFILE are re-creating this commemorative photograph 40 years later with people who live and work in the city and volunteer their time. This action will recognise, celebrate and honour the significant value of giving ‘free-time’ as a gift to others.

LOW PROFILE are Rachel Dobbs & Hannah Rose – artists based in Plymouth (UK), who have been working together over the last 19 years. Find out more about their work at We Are Low Profile
