PhD Project

PhD Titile: Coventry City of Culture 2021 through a Verbatim Theatre lens; A study into the City Image


In partnership with Warwick University, my study will investigate the cause and effect that UK City of Culture (CoC) trust’s work may have on the perceived city image of Coventry, by following the work of CoC producers leading up to and during the CoC year. Using headphone verbatim theatre as a lens for exploring these perceptions, this arts-informed research methodology aims to establish if the work of the CoC trust has the ability to shift perspectives of the public with regards to City Image and Civic pride. Potentially offering a new approach in measuring impact with regards to a Cultural Intervention Strategy such as the City of Culture Initiative, and provide advice to those invested in engaging communities in theatre practice in the future.
