Then join other Coventry people like you and help create activities for the family-friendly event Turning the Tide’ An Ocean Fair which will take place in April.
No arts ability required, just bring yourself and be part of co-creating ideas with others, including the Imagineer team who will help to bring the ideas to life.
Sessions take place at the Daimler Powerhouse on Thursday evenings from 10 Feb for 9 weeks. Anybody taking part is invited to help in delivering their activities at the Ocean Fair from 18 to 22 April.
FLOW is a project in three parts, created and led by Artistic Director Kathi Leahy and produced by Imagineer Productions with local, national and international partners. Flow is a 2021 City of Culture Project.
FLOW can be summarised as follows.
NAVIGATE Part 1
Working in partnership with Warwickshire Wildlife Trust and the Canal & Rivers Trust to reconnect young learners from Primary Schools in Coventry with Blue Spaces, develop environmental awareness exploring both the wealth and health of our waterways and oceans to co-create powerful performances and artwork which provoke action amongst their peer group and communities.
ACTIVATE Part 2
Young Environmental activists aged 14 years and above will work with a Creative Producer to be part of the programming and event group. You will collaborate with our Transformation programme of NEETS (16–25 year olds not in education, employment or training) to programme and deliver Turning the Tide’ An Ocean Fair.
CREATE Part 3
‘Milesians’ – a large-scale, high quality outdoor arts spectacle combining art engineering, aerial, circus and theatre will tell the story of an ancient Celtic origin myth of the last invaders of Ireland. This is a tale with themes which still resonate today of migration, cultural identity, cultural co-existence and the ocean as the great connector.
