One of Rhizome's aims from the outset has been to be involved with the local community. In the first year Rhizome run life-drawing classes, in years two and three we facilitated the Big Watercolour Day at the Red House (Plymouth School of Creative Arts) on behalf of the Plymouth Watercolour Society, and in year three we took part in Plymouth College of Art's Take Over The Clipper weekend. In subsequent years we have participated on the Union Street Party and held workshops for Millfields Inspired. We thrive on being more involved in Stonehouse, and are building connections with Nudge Community Builders and other local organisations. The Plymouth Art Weekender 2020 will be a big year for us, with a major project at the Tinside Lido.
