Planning the Warwick Programme
The university is currently a hive of activity and planning, as we get ready for the year ahead, with City of Culture launching on the 15th of May 2021. Well, I say ‘the university’ but of course we are actually all getting on with this work from our homes as we continue to face the challenges of planning for the most complex and ambitious set of public engagement projects the university has ever delivered in the city in the context of current lockdown restrictions.
