The Festival of Hope (FoH) is an exploration of the resolution of the human spirit and our unique ways of responding to global pandemic, isolation and loss.
In this partly online, partly in-person exhibition of visual art, literature, poetry, performance, music and more, local artists will share their unique perspectives on the nature of hope and what it means for us all right now.
View visual and literary works uncovering and exploring hope - both its presence and absence in the wake of a global pandemic and a recovering society. All contributions are kindly loaned to the digital exhibition and can be accessed throughout the 2021 Coventry City of Culture year of events.
In addition to our digital exhibition, we will be hosting live and in-person art exhibitions, readings, performances, music events and more when meeting face-to-face in larger numbers is possible once more. Look out for events you can attend starting sometime near October.
Are you an artist, poet, singer, dancer, comedian, musician or creator? The Festival of Hope is made up entirely of voluntary contributions from the community, giving you a platform to share local and global perspectives on hope in 2021 and beyond.
FoH is open to all and led by volunteers from Coventry churches and community groups with the aim of uplifting our city in a time of need.Learn More
