Activities and events labelled as 'Taking Place In Cov 2021' have not been produced or commissioned by Coventry City of Culture Trust but are taking place during the City of Culture year.

The first in a series of collaborations between the University of Warwick's Department of Film and Television Studies, the Centre for Television Histories and the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum, 2Tone: Lives and Legacies – Women Pioneers brings the pioneering women of punk and 2Tone to Coventry Cathedral for an evening of lively discussion and film screenings.

Our Q&A will be chaired by Jennifer Otter-Bickerdike and will feature Pauline Black (The Selecter), Rhoda Dakar (The Bodysnatchers/Specials/Special AKA), and Helen McCookerybook (The Chefs/Helen and the Horns). We’ll also be showing Stories from the She Punks (2018, 45 mins), a documentary that features the stories of women musicians from the punk-inspired bands of the 70s and Sisters with Transistors (Lisa Rovner, 2020, 90 mins), the remarkable untold story of electronic music’s female pioneers, composers who embraced machines and their liberating technologies to utterly transform how we produce and listen to music today.
