Listening Walks in and around Coventry

During May–October 2021, we organised a series of soundwalks in and around Coventry. These walks across different locations in the city and its surroundings which have special relevance to the making of futures, as well as to the role of universities in those futures: in Spencer Park, along Canley Brook at the edge of Warwick University Campus and along Coventry's Music Mile. These site visits provided opportunities to invite new participants into the project and to begin to hear and record what the future of and in Coventry might sound like in places as diverse as the woods, the city centre, and workplaces. Artist Adele wrote a report of a walk in Spencer park with Small FolkLink opens in a new window. A second walkLink opens in a new window along Canley Brook near the University of Warwick campus took place on June 14. A guided walk by Sarah Farmer along Coventry's Music Mile, Godivarius Lost and Found and Lost AgainLink opens in a new window took place on October 17 (the report is here)Link opens in a new window
