Work starting on a major transformation of a historic industrial site in Coventry into a new £2.4 million creative hub for artists has been announced.

Advent gained widespread regional news coverage for The Wigley Group, owner of the site and a significant funder of the scheme, starting construction on the first purpose-built and collaborative art production facility in the city in time for UK City of Culture 2021.

Daimler Powerhouse, funded with £1.9 million from the Cultural Capital Investment Fund which is resourced from Coventry City Council and the Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership’s Growth Deal, will provide dedicated spaces for artists and resident creative companies led by Imagineer Productions.
