IATL is recruiting two student Co-creation Officers

IATL is currently recruiting two student Co-creation Officers. The role will involve working within IATL to support the existing team and to develop the work of the department. Co-creation Officers will champion IATL and its activities at modules fairs, other events and in smaller groups.

IATL recently funded a student performance show.

"IATL’s funding was integral in my show’s success. My show ‘an evening with verse writer’ is a poetry play fused with music and art.

The funding allowed me to support student artists within university and beyond. Shown in the Coventry Shop Front Theatre, ‘ an evening with verse writer ‘ successfully opened a space for honest conversations.

It also won an Artistic Development Award and has now been commissioned for 2 nights - October 2 and October 3 in the Warwick Arts Centre.

Members of the teaching team of IATL’s Science of Music module, including Dr Oksana Trushkevych, Dr Gavin Bell, Dr Sue Burrows, Tim Cunningham and the Coull Quartet, gave a talk and musical performance at the Guildhall in Coventry on the opening day of the British Science Festival. IATL’s tutors explained in their talk how sound waves are made, how they travel through the air and how they’re perceived, referencing their teaching on the Science of Music module and research in Ultrasound.
