We were delighted to welcome Harley Dubois one of the originators of Burning Man to lecture about the now 30-year annual event held in the Nevada desert and also to work in collaboration with Outdoor Arts UK and many of the country’s leading practitioners including Helen Marriage – Artistic Director Artichoke and Maggie Clark XTRAX – to create an outdoor arts day which explored art and engineering and large- scale installation and performance at a national level.

The Movers and Makers education conference was very well attended and marks a major new development for Imagineer in partnership with Primary School teachers and in collaboration with Highly Sprung Performance Company, Open Theatre, The Imagineering Foundation, Vortex Creates and local producer Anne Forgan.

The Wheel Ways exhibition successfully launched our citywide cycle project after a two-year period of development. We were able to launch a completed BUZZ Bike and the prototype for the PAL Bike and some of the early winning prototypes from The Marvellous Mechanical Machines Project. The exhibition also showcased our early work with Coventry City Council identifying cycle routes in the city to be opened up and ready for 2021.
