Coventry Digital Online Workshops

Coventry Digital is a repository of Coventry-related images, documents and videos. Its purpose is to collect these assets to enable evidencing the many stories of the city.

Warwick UK Cities of Culture Project: The Future Trends Series

We are pleased to announce the release of The Future Trends Series today.

The Future Trends series, published as part of the Warwick UK Cities of Culture Project and commissioned by the AHRC, discusses ways of thinking about the value of culture: the importance of research in understanding the place of culture in everyday lives, its impact on local people, society, economy and wellbeing and prosperity at large; and how this research-informed approach connects with the needs of policy making. Each title in the series presents an expert analysis of current and future trends concerning key concepts or ideas, supported by case study evidence from Coventry UK City of Culture 2021.

Care, Caring and Carers - Communicating University research through artistic expression

The experiences of care (and caring) for families and communities during the Covid-19 pandemic lies at the heart of Dr Shahnaz Akhter’s recent Coventry Creates project. The research moves away from applying a theoretical lens to issues faced by participants. Instead, it works with communities to understand the challenges that they’ve encountered.
