We’ve put together an interactive, illustrated map of Plymouth!

By Jake May

Far from simply being 'based in Plymouth', we as Plymouth College of Art are very passionate about the city in which we live.

It's why we built a creative free school, Plymouth School of Creative Arts, in one of the city's least privileged areas.

It's why we opened up our FabLab, FabLab Plymouth, for use not only by our creative students but also for local arts organisations and businesses.

It's why we work closely with the likes of Karst, Theatre Royal, Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery, and more – to engage our students within the creative Plymouth community and give back to the city we love so much.

So, in our latest prospectus, we decided to create an illustrated map of some of our students' favourite gems, jaunts and hideaways that the city has to offer. 

And now we've made the map interactive!

Hover over each location and organisation to find out a little more about it, visit their website, and – most importantly – visit them!

If this is a little too small for your screens, feel free to take a look at it on thinglink.

And if you want to embed it on your own website, you're more than welcome to do that too!
