Coventry Ring Road inspires verse amid City of Culture bid

Eighteen artists have produced films featuring verse that honours a city's busy road network.

The Disappear Here project has created 27 films about Coventry Ring Road as the city ramps up its bid to be UK City of Culture in 2021. The films are being shown in the city on Thursday.

Project leader Adam Steiner said: "Coventry Ring Road is one of the city’s most iconic and notorious physical landmarks, acting as both city wall, orbital conduit and dividing line.

"I feel the ring road deserves to be celebrated as well as criticised – it is the duty of artists and citizens to engage with issues of public space, control of architecture and the human experience of our built environment, to shine a light on the fantastic, the boring and the universal in the everyday."
