This research asks how the police can use City of Culture as a platform to engage the public, whilst also managing crime and protecting event attendees. The project explores the potential for police partnerships around arts and culture, and how this can support crime reduction and protecting vulnerable people.
Warwick is proud to present 'The Resonate Festival' - 12 months of public events which will include talks and public conversations through to exhibitions, film festivals, walking tours, debates, performances, shows, activities, experiences, panel discussions, creativity, fun, inspiration, and contributions from many of our wonderful community partners.
As the ethos of any City of Culture is rooted in place, it is important to find out about those who don’t engage to ensure opportunities are provided for all citizens to get involved and participate. Information about those who do not participate is as equally important as for those who do.
As Coventry embarks on its year-long celebration of the title of UK City of Culture, a team of researchers at the Centre for Cultural and Media Policy Studies at University of Warwick will work together with residents in the city to unearth the impact of the title on their lives and work.
Research has been a key driver in the University’s partnership in Coventry City of Culture – including during the last year, despite the challenges of lockdown and home working. In the last three years, Warwick researchers have carried out more than 60 new research projects - working in diverse ways and settings with a wide range of organisations, artists and communities.
Warwick Arts Centre is hugely excited to start welcoming back audiences, with plans to reopen fully in October 2021.
But before the Arts Centre fully reopens, we’ve got to celebrate the start of Coventry’s year as UK City of Culture! Have a look at what’s planned for the summer months, including the chance to experience some much missed live theatre.
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.
