Festival of Hope

What does hope really mean? The committee at Coventry’s inaugural Festival of Hope asked for my help to explore just that.

About the project

A rag team team of volunteers were pretty fed up with that whole global pandemic thing you might remember and wanted a way of showing their community some light at the end of the tunnel. This led them to the idea of exploring hope through art in all its forms in an exhibition open to everyone in their city Coventry.

The problem was, in 2021, plenty of people were reluctant to join this sort of thing in person. That's when the FoH steering group (they're a thing now) asked me to come up with a space to host this exhibition (as well as details of a raft of cool digital and in-person events) online.

I loved starting from scratch on this project - starting from mood boards exploring different approaches to festival branding with the members of the team, we moved through the wireframing and then development process for their home online. I was also able to support them with site maintenance and updates throughout the event to keep everyone on the same page.

Dozens of artists took part in the exhibition which was visited by thousands of local residents during the festival, and the festival was a huge hit in the city as it overlapped with Coventry's "UK City of Culture" year.

This sort of thing makes you feel pretty... well... hopeful.
