Bridge is an ambitious outdoor art and engineering project that will lead to the creation of an iconic bridge structure. Bridge lies at the intersection of art, engineering and social change. The project will culminate in 2020 with three major outdoor arts events in Coventry, Worcester and Grantham.
Imagineer is collaborating with exceptional artists and civil engineers Arup on the realisation of Bridge.

What our audiences say…
Atmosphere in pool was just lovely – a time out of time. Normal rules didn’t quite apply & people could speak to strangers. Thank you!
Wonderful, unusual and imaginative…
Wonderful, unusual and imaginative events. Loved the moon in the pool and the cathedral, the man in the bucket-boat with his own cloud sail, The Emperor of Cardbordia and the magical Winters Tale. A fantastic week. Art for free. Cov’s the place. Thanks Imagineers.
Just loved it…
The Winters Tale was fantastic despite the rain – I just loved it. Huge congratulations to all involved.
Fantastic performance! Especially on Saturday in heavy rain! Thanks to all the performers and crew who made it possible and to Imagineer!
It was brilliant, thank you for all your hard work organising it, we are very lucky to have you working and creating in our city.
Weird and fabulous…
Absolutely stunning, weird and fabulous evening/week in Coventry. Well done Imagineer; we are so lucky to have you local to us. Rain didn’t matter!
Mesmerising and beautiful…
Dramatic, mesmerising and beautiful. Museum of the Moon and the Moonlight Medley at Coventry Cathedral was amazing. Congratulations Imagineer!
I have been teaching for 10 years and have never seen anything like this, the project models, presentation and performances were so imaginative and committed, the way the whole class of children as judges were so focused and attentive is testament to the quality of the project.
We have received some great news, we have been awarded the Gold Arts Award accreditation from Arts Council England. We are delighted and I would like to express my sincere thanks for the support and inspiration that Imagineer offered to our school.
