Bridge was launched at Coventry Cathedral during the Festival of Imagineers in September 2018. We asked visitors to the festival to share their experiences of bridge building, and tried out some of our artistic ideas for Bridge on volunteer participants.
During autumn 2018 we made links with our partners in Coventry, Grantham and Worcester. Bridge is rooted in the community in which it is based, with local people making their own Bridges and contributing to the success of the project.
In spring 2019 we moved to the Design and Production stage. Engineers at Arup are working with Designer Dan Potra to find a workable design for the Bridge. It must be safe for performers and audiences, be visually arresting and transportable.
Meanwhile we have started the search for world-class performance artists, who will be supported by a talented team of producers.
