The Festival of Imagineers is Coventry-based celebration of art and engineering. For a week in September, we go behind the scenes into the world of making and creativity, with talks, workshops, tours, exhibitions, installations and performance.

The Festival of Imagineers exists to connect people with creatives and makers, engineers and manufacturers, designers and architects.

Get a glimpse into the creative process, witness projects in-the-making and be inspired by amazing performances and productions on the streets of Coventry.

The Festival of Imagineers ended in September 2018 after 4 years of really successful programming and audience development. The relationship that Imagineer was beginning to form with Artichoke and our Burning Man, who were guests to the festival in 2018, and then our visit to Nevada, inspired us to begin to form a new partnership. Since then we have conceived a much larger regional event with national and international significance which celebrates work at the intersection of art and engineering and architecture and the industrial heritage of the region which looks forward to also celebrating an innovative technological West Midlands region with environmental sustainability at its heart.

With a 6 month research and development grant from Arts Council England in January 2020, we have been working together to create a business and delivery plan for Combustion.
