The first online stage of the festival will take place from September this year, with a curated website to showcase artistic expressions of hope, mainly from local people, but also from people across the world. We’ll consider contributions from painters, illustrators, sculptors, conceptual artists, photographers, story-tellers, poets, writers, craftspeople, dancers, singers, instrumentalists, bands, songwriters, composers and more. Students, amateur and professional artists are all invited to submit their work.
In addition to the online exhibition, there will be a series of events throughout 2021/22 alongside the Coventry City of Culture year. These will include things like poetry evenings, holiday clubs, dancing or craft workshops, public exhibitions, and more. Check out our events page to see what's on at the Festival of Hope.
