The event was held in Coventry University’s Disruptive Media lab which is a well designed open plan environment with digital access, where you might choose between teaching and meeting!

On my way back to town I promised myself a visit to Monica Petzal’s Indelible Marks exhibition at the Herbert Art Gallery. But on my way I realised this was the third day of graduation ceremonies and the gallery was wardrobe HQ! Great to see so many students enjoying their day of celebration with families and friends.

Before seeing Monica’s show there were many artefacts on permanent show.






See the gallery for more pictures from the Herbert Collection

and Indelible Marks by Monica Petzal which marks the 75th anniversary of the Coventry Blitz and the 70th anniversary of the Dresden bombings; Indelible Marks connects Coventry with its twinned city.
