How is Warwick's Food GRP supporting Coventry 2021?
The University of Warwick and Coventry University together announce 13 brand new public engagement projects combining research staff from both Universities with cultural organisations in Coventry. These underpin Coventry City Council’s Cultural Strategy and lay groundwork for both REF 2021 and Coventry City of Culture 2021.
All the projects will disseminate academic research through active participation; the Summer term will see the two Universities host a combined showcase event on Friday 06 July 2018 at Fargo to celebrate some of the many outputs from the projects. With the projects using various methods to communicate their research ranging from cooking, dance, theatre, mosaics, photography, workshops, poetry, storytelling, writing, and even lego – the showcase is sure to be interesting!
Two of the projects are supported by the Food GRP:
‘Invisible Irish’ of Coventry: women diaspora, food and performance - A series of cook-along interviews exploring the experiences of food, identity and belonging among first generation Irish women living in Coventry.
'Can't we DO IT OURSELVES?' - Public engagement events exploring food, health, and citizenship delivered with Moat House Community Trust.
Who's driving the tractor? Conversations with Women in UK Agriculture
