Futures Coventry Urban Mining Programme

Lucy Tomlins
President Kennedy School, Park Gate and Barr’s Hill


In collaboration with The Futures Trust we are running a parallel Urban Mining x Public Art Coventry schools programme with President Kennedy, Park Gate and Barr’s Hill.

The approach will include an ‘artist-in-residence’ model. A mix of direct working with teachers and students in TFT primary and secondary schools, bespoke programming for different schools and age groups will explore and replicate the most appropriate aspects of the wider Pangaea Urban Mining project, modelling the design approach of ‘discover’,’define’, ‘develop’, ‘deliver’.

Pangaea will work with a selected groups of up to 15 students in each setting over a period of 6 weeks, one day a week, in a range of workshop activities and field work.

This work will culminate in the creation of a collaborative sculpture developed from the Urban Mining framework, with all the participating students, at the end of July on one site.
