18 Pieces Of Research, 18 Creative Responses


A digital exhibition of artworks created during lockdown and inspired by university research. 18 artistic responses to research dealing with several and multifaceted themes: Coventry poetry, Covid-19 and the Black Lives Matters movement, Coventry and refugees, its twinning history, women's suffrage, homelessness and interactive games.
Coventry Creates is part of the ongoing work by Coventry and Warwick universities in the lead up to the City of Culture. The University Partnership has funded over 30 creative research projects, involving over 50 Coventry organisations and local communities.
During the March-May 2020 Covid-19 UK lockdown the two Universities selected 18 local artists to receive a grant that allowed them to continue their work during the pandemic. Coventry Creates received over 100 applications by researchers from the social sciences, arts, science and medicine from across both the city's universities.
The project, Coventry Creates, provided up to £2,000 funding to the chosen projects so that they could keep producing artwork for this collaborative digital exhibition, in the run up to UK City of Culture 2021.
The exhibition will be hosted until December 2022 and all art works will also be kept in the Coventry City of Culture Digital Archive. The collaboration between The University of Warwick and Coventry University follows a new Memorandum of Understanding that provides them with new opportunities to work together to the benefits of arts and culture throughout the region.
Organisers invites to visit the online exhibition and participate to a survey that is available on the Coventry creates webpage.
