Open Citizens

Ludic Rooms at Various Locations (to be announced soon).

Open Citizens aims to transform the experiences of a city’s custodians. We spent time with more than 300 local people from all walks of life, piggybacking public events and leading our own roundtable sessions during which participants were invited to imagine opportunities for play in the city using creative technologies.

Ideas were devised on paper, then in 3D using familiar materials to rapidly prototype and realise their concept.

Following a period of more refined making with a group of associate artists and technologists, Ludic Rooms will occupy the city for one week during Coventry Biennial of Contemporary Art with a series of highly visible and ‘stumble upon-able’ interactive artworks which act as a manifesto for the city; produced in dialogue with its citizens and shared with optimism for a new, open, playable future.

This work has been commissioned by the Coventry City of Culture Trust with additional funding from Arts Council England.

Open daily from the 16th – 22nd October, please visit for times and locations.
