Window Wanderland + Artist On My Street

Find out more about how Coventry people are transforming ordinary streets into extraordinary art trails.

WINDOW WANDERLAND IMAGE GALLERY

From 20 February to 19 March 2021, streets across Coventry and Warwickshire lit up their front windows and gardens and became beautiful walking trails. Thanks to support from The National Lottery Community Fund, we worked with amazing people across the city who were determined to get their local communities involved.

Window Wanderland is part of #LoveCoventry, a Coventry UK City of Culture 2021 programme funded by the National Lottery Community Fund

ARTIST ON MY STREET

During Coventry’s year as UK City of Culture, Coventry Artspace is administering 21 x £500 bursaries for local artists to create work for Coventry communities, bringing the work of locally based artists to Coventry neighbourhoods.

In the first round five artists were selected to show their work in the windows and entrances of public buildings around the suburbs of Coventry, making their unique art visible and accessible to the public. Check them out below. (Photos by Jamie Gray)
