Coventry Creates

About

Coventry Creates unites researchers with local artists to produce art reflecting key issues and themes across the region.
 

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 provided up to £2,000 to artists, helping them continue their work during the Covid-19 pandemic.

“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.”

Professor Jackie Hodgson, Deputy Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Research)

From social sciences to arts, to science and medicine, university researchers worked with local artists to create innovative art projects. This resulted in an online Digital Exhibition in October 2020.
