Coventry and Warwickshire residents are getting a second chance to see and experience artworks created as part of the Sensing the City project, previously shown in The Herbert in 2020.
· The University of Warwick and Coventry University have announced the 12 successful projects which will receive Arts Council England funding as part of the Coventry Creates 2021 project.
· The University of Warwick and Coventry University have launched a second joint project to fund local artists to work in collaboration with academics and local arts organisations
When Museums closed their doors in March 2020 for the first COVID-19 lockdown in the UK a majority moved their activities online to keep their audiences interested. Researchers from WMG, University of Warwick have worked with OUMNH, to analyse the success of the exhibitions, and say the way Museums operate will change forever.
A showcase of work by Coventry artists, funded by the city’s universities and produced during lockdown, is now live for the public to view.
