Projects / Godiva Awakes

For the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad, Imagineer created a 10-metre high puppet of Lady Godiva who travelled from Coventry to London powered by 50 cyclists.

The Godiva Awakes project has left a powerful legacy of collaboration in the city. Imagineer worked with 17 local and regional engineering companies to make Godiva a reality. These collaborations have led to a series of developing projects that explore work at the intersection of engineering and art.

Godiva continues to tour and to witness events in and around Coventry, and played a valuable role in securing Coventry its City of Culture status.

We hope that Godiva will take up residence in the Daimler Powerhouse, becoming a visitor attraction for the City.
