Projects / Sanctuary

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

Imagineer is working with Artichoke and Coventry City of Culture 2021 to develop this biennial event. We plan a celebration of installation work, sitting at the intersection of art, engineering, architecture and social change.

Artwork honouring those lost to Covid to be built by local community in ‘the town that never forgets’
21 – 28 May 2022

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

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