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.
Presented by Orbit
As proud City Champions of Coventry 2021, Orbit are funding the ‘Portraits of Coventry’ project which directly aligns with their mission statement of ‘building thriving communities’. Portraits of Coventry is a series of paintings by local artist Andy Farr in collaboration with Orbit, based on conversations with people who live, or have made their home, in Coventry, including some of our Orbit customers and residents. These incredible portraits will be exhibited as part of ‘At Home in Coventry’ in the Arcadia Gallery from 15 September 2021. Alongside exhibiting Andy’s work, we will also be presenting some of the pieces produced by the Foleshill Creates At Home project, which took place between November 2020 and February 2021, allowing Orbit customers and other Coventry residents to take part in virtual art workshops.
This project is part of Orbit's Coventry City of Culture programme – find out more here: https://www.orbitcustomerhub.org.uk/publications/campaigns/coventry-uk-city-of-culture-2021/ Oribit have also secured space in the heart of Coventry Market to display hanging posters of the portraits and info about the project.
