From the impact of Covid-19 on hospices, to exploring cultural memory and heritage through sound, to prisoner experiences, artists and our academics and researchers are working together to engage the public with research.
Working with a diverse range of organisations and communities, alongside the universities’ own individual programmes of research, these collaborative relationships are opening up opportunities to learn, reflect and engage new audiences on societal issues that matter.

Since March 2020, the UK has been in some form of lockdown.
Taking a series of interviews as its starting point, this project weaves the words of Coventry people's experience of lockdown into a fictionalised narrative story. It was accompanied by images from a mass participation public photographic project, before finally becoming a film entitled Emerging from Lockdown.
In 2020, Coventry Creates provided a unique opportunity for academics to work with local artists to develop digital artwork in response to University of Warwick research.
The programme ran again in 2021, with another exciting array of projects developed in response to University research.
Coventry Biennial presents socially, politically and critically engaged artistic practices in Coventry and Warwickshire.
From exploring how field recording and sonic research can help attune us to the shifting state of our planet, to prisoner experiences and survival strategies, Warwick researchers have partnered with the Biennial in a number of ways.

This project explores creative and philosophical responses to the pandemic. The Life Futures project is designed to promote a debate on the conditions of life and creation during the pandemic, and a collective exercise of imagining new possibilities for a post-Covid future.
