The University of Warwick and Coventry University have announced funding for local artists to create digital art in the lead up to Coventry City of Culture 2021.

The work will be showcased this summer in a special exhibition and will then be kept in the Coventry City of Culture Digital Archive.

Professor Jackie Hodgson, University of Warwick Deputy Pro-Vice Chancellor for Research said:

"Coventry University and the University of Warwick are both delighted to be able to announce this partnership call providing funding of up to £2,000 per project, to commission local artists and creative organisations to collaborate with our researchers in order to create novel artworks in response to research projects. This is an exciting opportunity for researchers to work with artists of all descriptions in creative and innovative ways, to extend the reach of their work, gain new contacts and engage with City of Culture."

Professor Judith Mossman, Pro Vice Chancellor for Arts and Humanities at Coventry University said:

“We are delighted to be collaborating on this innovative venture to support our local artists and creatives at this difficult time.”
