Event Details

This event finished on 31 July 2021

Life on the Breadline is a challenging new exhibition being premiered in Coventry Cathedral this summer.

The exhibition arises from the Life on the Breadline project, which began in 2018, led by researchers from Coventry University, the University of Manchester, and the Queen’s Foundation. The exhibition features photographs from Life on the Breadline’s grassroots case studies in Birmingham, London, and Manchester which challenge the way we think about people’s experience of poverty in the UK and how Christians have responded to poverty during the ‘age of austerity’.  The photographs have been taken by the research team and by local residents, volunteers, and staff at the six case study projects.

The free exhibition runs in the Chapel of Unity in Coventry Cathedral from 3rd July to 28th July 2021.

Please note: All visitors will be required to book a free ‘Entry and Exhibition’ ticket to visit Coventry Cathedral when it reopens in Spring 2021. The Cathedral is open from 10am to 4pm from Monday to Saturday, and from 12.30pm to 3pm on Sundays.
