Studio Van combined the arts practice expertise of Coventry University with the outreach and participation expertise of Warwick Arts Centre.
The project shared the skills and creative thinking approaches vital for our jobs market, civic duties and community building. It accessed hard to reach communities to provide an artistic space in cultural cold spots.
A trial period ensured that the Studio Van was responsive to the needs of the local community. The pilot project aimed to provide a mobile space for academics and community participants to experiment with art materials and create new work. The aim was to test the viability of purchasing a mobile art space to be jointly owned by the partnership.
