Festival of Hope Coventry 2021-2022
Thank you to everyone who took part!

The Festival of Hope (FoH) was an exploration of the resolution of the human spirit and our unique ways of responding to global pandemic, isolation and loss.

This beautiful adventure would not have been possible without the wonderful people, both artists, curators and organisers who took part and we are very grateful. Thank you for sharing your unique perspectives on the nature of hope and what it meant for us all after the pandemic.

The artworks can still be enjoyed on our online exhibition. You will find expressions of hope through visual art, literature, poetry, performance, music and more.
