Uncover / Discover
An ambitious programme of creative work for young people with learning disabilities, revealing the creativity rippling through Coventry.
Inspired by the rivers and waterways of Coventry, Uncover/Discover ran four streams of artistic work with groups of young people with learning disabilities, inside and outside schools, across 2021 and 2022.
Across 2 years of activity, we’ve delivered 1158 workshops with young people. We’ve created 3 films with 6 schools and supported 4 new apprentice filmmakers, built vast sculptures, solved mysteries and fought off the evil Coventry Corp.
We aimed to give the opportunity for every young person in these schools to be a part of Coventry’s City of Culture in their own way. Learn more about all the fantastic things young people achieved here.
River City Detectives
An opportunity for a group of young people from special schools to learn outside their classroom environment and with new people inspired by the waterways and heritage buildings of Coventry.
