CLIENT: COVENTRY CITY COUNCIL
LOCATION: COVENTRY, CITY WIDE
SERVICES: PLACEMAKING + CURATION + DESIGN
As the appointed place curators for Coventry's Public Realm we provided strategic consultancy, design and development services and public art strategy to Coventry City Council in the 16 months leading up to the Coventry City of Culture launch in May 2021.
These projects and initiatives not only set the stage for the cultural celebrations being led by the Coventry City of Culture Trust, they are the legacy for Coventry’s citizens and visitors for years to come.
Recognising that public art can often be an after thought in regeneration schemes, we focused on integrating public art into the early stages of redevelopment in some of the key areas of the city centre. Working directly with artists was vital to ensure that a level of community involvement and collaboration was at the heart of public realm strategy.
