Could the benefits system be harnessed to provide a more sustainable and more equitable creative economy? This webinar, and the associated podcasts, consider how the benefits system could support a fairer, more sustainable creative economy. The pandemic has exposed and exacerbated the precarity of creative work for freelance artists, and the difficulties for young people starting out on a creative career, especially those from working class backgrounds.
This webinar features an invited panel responding to issues raised in the Artists With Benefits podcasts – and to questions and comments from webinar participants.
Teleworkability as a new digital divide – Webinar
July 14th, 11am-12pm
What has the extent of teleworking been in the EU before and during the Covid-19 outbreak? Are we seeing a trend of new teleworkers across occupations and types of workers who weren’t able to work remotely previously?
This webinar, facilitated by Professor Chris Warhurst from the Institute of Employment Research and Dr Enrique Fernández-Macías of the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission, examines how Covid-19 has changed the profile of the teleworker and what it means for the future of work.

Coventry: Lost, Found, Imagined
Where large scale and a smaller trail of black and white photographs are 'added to' with illustrations and my tiny glass pieces specially designed to tell stories about what was there and what could be there.
It's approachable, family friendly and designed to chime with both Coventry Kids young and old, adopted Coventry kids and visitors alike.
If you've never visited Holy Trinity, it's a really beautiful church with plenty of permanent objects of interest including an exceptionally rare medieval Doom Painting.
Coventry: Lost, Found, Imagined is free entry and Full details are here
To book a timed slot please go to the City of Culture website
Whilst not essential, this will help us with social distancing on the trail around the church.
Thank you and hope to see some of you there!

We will be holding a fun Balsam Bashing Challenge on 23rd June from 1-4.30pm where teams of volunteers will be competing against each other to pull up Himalayan Balsam plants along the banks of Canley Brook. The team with the biggest pile at the end will win Warwick Volunteers goodie bags including branded t-shirts, water bottles and much more!!
Himalayan Balsam is an invasive plant that grows rapidly in tall dense colonies by brooks and rivers. It has large leaves that block sunlight, causing native plant species to die. When Himalayan Balsam dominates the bankside, biodiversity is reduced. With fewer plant species, the brook supports less wildlife, endangering creatures like the fluffy water vole.

Warwick Careers Society has re-established in 2020 and aims to support students throughout the journey of career planning which can be overwhelming.

While continuing these events, we will also introduce more exciting programmes for the upcoming year and are looking for passionate students to join us and grow with the society.
