Coventry City Council’s Insight team has collected a wide range of Coventry UK City of Culture (UK CoC 2021) related data. Working with Warwick Business School students, several data-related projects have been commissioned and managed by the Council, to analyse Coventry residents’ participation in UK CoC 2021 events.
Student Project Topics
ticketing and exit-survey data
Study by Fengyun Tan
The aim was to generate a profile of the residents’ participation in UK CoC 2021 events, reflecting on factors which might influence participation such as levels of deprivation and household income. The project evaluated whether deprived communities had been reached by cultural events.
Sentiment Surveys, Coventry Household Survey and participation data
Study by Suraj Rajakrishnan and Jiaqi Zhong
Relationships were compared between Coventry residents’ perception of the UK CoC 2021, their historic patterns of cultural participation and overall wellbeing, against their actual participation in events.
ticketing data and residents’ cultural participation
Study by Ku-Chun Yeh
The project compared attendance at events against the socioeconomic profiles (using Coventry Household survey data) and the interests of residents in cultural events, to show how successful the UK CoC 2021 was in reaching the general public.
Attitudes to Covid-19 and Attendance at events
Study by Muhammad Gibran
The UK CoC 2021 had to constantly respond to Government Covid-19 regulations and guidance when running its events. The project explored how people reacted to the measures taken by venues, in contrast to how vulnerable they felt to Covid-19, and evaluated how this affected their participation.
These student projects were supported by Tim Healey and Viviana Sagredo at Coventry City Council’s Insight Team, working together with Warwick Business School.
