Politics & Pakora: Imagining futures for Coventry’s cultural infrastructures

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


An event to discuss the future for Coventry's cultural infrastructures.
25 invited participants from cultural organisations will discuss 5 questions

What can we learn from the experience of Coventry City of Culture, given the context that the Trust has gone into administration?

How can sustainable arts economies be built? What would that look like?

How can university assets support the production of culture across Coventry?

Participants will be invited to participate in an artwork by our collaborator - artist-researcher Sadie Edginton who will document participants using visual codes (abstract shapes the artist has designed). These codes will signify whether the participant lives in Coventry, and what they see their role being (artist, academic, cultural worker, activist, member of public). This will be anonymous.

Sadie Edginton will also lead an activity inviting participants to specify keywords that are relevant to the conversation.
