at City Arcadia, 32 City Arcade, Coventry, CV1 3HW
Artspace’s curators, Laura Elliott & Michael Mayhew announce the launch of City Arcadia, a bold new programme of creative responses to Coventry city centre’s – Past, Present and imagined Future.
Elliott & Mayhew are planning and commissioning an 18-month Arts Council England & Coventry City Council funded programme that will inspire new imaginings, insights, and perceptions of a city in transition. At the launch they will release an open call for artists to engage with the themes and conversations of City Arcadia, a new City Arcadia dossier and (river), a collaboration with artist Kathryn Hawkins to create a sculptural installation that exposes, reveals and illuminates the hidden undercurrent beneath Coventry city’s foundations.
We Invite you to ‘Enter Optimism’ with us on Thursday 11th September from 5:30pm onwards and start a journey into our unknown future…
