In spring 2020, the City of Culture University Partnership funded 18 local artists to respond to, and work with, researchers from the University of Warwick and Coventry University - resulting in a wide range of innovative artworks presented through a digital exhibition. Coventry Creates 2020 provided up to £2,000 to artists, helping them continue their work during the Covid-19 pandemic.
From social sciences to arts, to science and medicine, researchers worked with artists to create art projects, resulting in a Digital Exhibition in October 2020.
“We are delighted to showcase the work of Coventry artists, who have worked closely with Warwick and Coventry researchers during these difficult and unprecedented times. The works of art highlight salient issues faced by Coventry’s residents, and illustrate the strength and resilience of both the artistic and academic communities in a time of uncertainty.”
