A series of special projects celebrating Coventry's City of Culture year in 2021.
The Faculty of Arts and Humanities at Coventry University has led cultural and creative innovation since its inception as Coventry College of Design in 1843. Now in the year of Coventry’s City of Culture, we have continued to develop our vibrant community engagement and create opportunities for students to be involved in this powerful and dynamic time for Coventry. Through university and faculty support, we have supported students in a range of exciting community collaborations, projects, dialogues and interactions across Coventry.
Our students have been instrumental in designing the volunteer uniform for City of Culture and have undertaken a Coventry Sketchbook project creating amazing narratives about their Coventry. Coventry Storytellers aims to capture life in Foleshill through cyanotype workshops and participants’ meaningful objects, which will be on display around Coventry's community spaces and our website and social media channels.
This selection of projects provides a glimpse into the student experience and activities at the beginning, during and beyond City of Culture celebrations.
