Projects / Sanctuary

Sanctuary was a major event inspired by Burning Man in Nevada, USA.

Imagineer worked with Artichoke and Coventry City of Culture 2021 to develop this biennial event. We celebrated an installation of work that sat at the intersection of art, engineering, architecture and social change.

Artwork was created to honour those lost to Covid and built by local community in ‘the town that never forgets’

In May 2022, a unique public memorial was built in Nuneaton & Bedworth, the birthplace of George Eliot and home to the country’s largest Armistice Day Parade. Sanctuary stood as an unforgettable temporary structure and space of healing, built by the local community to commemorate the nation’s loss during Covid.

Sanctuary was produced by Artichoke in association with Imagineer, supported by Nuneaton & Bedworth Borough Council, Warwickshire County Council, and the DCMS Culture Recovery Fund.
