Jacqui Ibbotson publishes the evaluation report for Coventry's Great Place Scheme, a £1.7 million programme which ran from 2017 - 2021 and saw over 40 arts and heritage projects delivered across the city, exploring identity and place.
Euton Daley steps down as a Director of Oxford Arts Consultants to pursue his writing and performances together with his tireless work with the #Black Lives Matter campaign. Jacqui, Angeli, Myfanwy and Ruth wish him the very best of luck with his plans to tour:
"We become silent about the things that matter"
Martin Luther King Jr.
A trilogy of work fusing dance, theatre and performance poetry, Ending the Silence is very much influenced by the Black diaspora experience and the struggle for justice and equality. It encompasses the contemporary world as well as learning from the past and looking towards the future. The pieces can be performed separately or all together.
Following the sell-out success and great responses from audiences to the stage production of #Ending the Silence in 2018, Euton is exploring options of touring this "ground-breaking work" - watch this space. http://www.eutondaley.com/
The latest project in the
Coventry Great Place Scheme
produced by Jacqui Ibbotson
for Coventry City of Culture Trust,
was launched in February 2021.
An interactive, digital record of Coventry featuring maps and photos charting the city’s history, from medieval to modern times.
Designed to be enjoyed on desktops or mobiles The Coventry Atlas – https://www.coventryatlas.org/ – allows people to track Coventry’s pre and post-war history through photographs and drawings placed onto maps of the city ranging from the ride of Lady Godiva through to celebrating Coventry City’s FA Cup victory in 1987.
Coventry Atlas has been produced by Coventry City of Culture Trust with a range of partners including Coventry University, Culture Coventry and Photo Miners.
The launch of the site is, however, only the beginning.
The people of Cov are being asked to upload and tag their images to build up a bank of photographs that will eventually lead to every street in Coventry being represented on the Coventry Atlas. Submissions for the Atlas can be done through Coventry University’s https://coventry.digital/ site, which was launched earlier this year and will soon introduce a submissions portal, making contributing easy.
Photo Miners, funded by Coventry City Council, will be working with communities over the next few months, to develop trails through Coventry. The trails will encourage people to get out and explore different bits of Coventry and will be created from collections of community contributed images and stories which will be available on Coventry Atlas.
Coventry Atlas will act as an educational resource – with specific learning packs aimed at schools – and a site for the whole city to enjoy through 2021 and beyond.
