Jo Loosemore will speak on:
“Mayflower 400: Legend and Legacy”
We are delighted that Jo Loosemore will be giving this year’s President’s Lecture providing the Field Club with an opportunity to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower to America.
Jo is the curator of the Mayflower 400: Legacy and Legend exhibition which will have just opened in the Box, Plymouth, the biggest museum opening in the UK this year. The £40m Box will also become the south west’s largest centre for art and the home of the regional film and Plymouth City archives.
The exhibition has been created in partnership with many organisations including the Wampanoag Native American Advisory Committee, using objects, images and ideas coming from museums, libraries and archives across the UK, US and The Netherlands.
Jo will reveal how these partnerships are changing perceptions of the ship, its passengers and an epic journey from both Southampton and Plymouth made 400 years ago.
Jo Loosemore is also a radio producer, presenter and maker working on a wide variety of programmes including The Listening project with the British Library and BBC Radio 4 and many arts and heritage-related projects with BBC local radio.
