New HopePunk Festival coming to Coventry to explore how creativity helps health and wellbeing

A FESTIVAL exploring ‘hope’ comes to Coventry’s LTB Showrooms from 12pm to 4pm between April 8 and 10.

HopePunk – organised by the city’s health and wellbeing social enterprise Hope For The Community CIC will also look at how important creativity is to health and wellbeing.

The event will feature the 32 artists from the CIC’s Hope Programme, along with local and national creatives who have formed the HopePunk Collective.

Visitors and participants will be asked about what hope means to them and stories of talented people living with chronic illnesses and their carers will be showcased.

The event is part of Coventry’s UK City of Culture year and there will be 80 pieces on display, along with a packed programme of talks, workshops, music, poetry, sound bath meditation and a dedicated podcast.

Some talks and workshops will be ticketed due to limited capacity.

Visit Hope For The Community’s social media pages or hopepunk.org.uk for more.
