Culture Conversations: What's Art Got To Do With It?
The pandemic has brought inequality and the challenges faced by many in society into sharp focus. It has also shone a spotlight on the relationship between creativity and our wellbeing, igniting new hobbies and old passions for art of all kinds.
But what about the role of the Arts in social change? As we ‘build back better’, what’s art got to do with it?
This workshop will be a space to reconnect and consider how the arts might continue to challenge the status quo. It will be led by Coventry artist Edie Jo Murray alongside artists from the Reform the Norm Collective’s first cohort.
We will talk about why our City of Culture has a Caring City team and share some highlights of our Caring City manifesto.
