A Soldier's Story by David Tovey: Workshop

Long-time collaborator and ex-homeless artist and campaigner David Tovey will be presenting A Soldiers Story during the State of the Nation week.

Ex-homeless artist and campaigner David Tovey will be presenting A Soldiers Story during the State of the Nation week.

A Soldier’s story is a work that depicts the harrowing stories of ex-servicemen who have become homeless in the UK. There are five stories, a small part of a much bigger number. As the UK reflects on the centenary of the First World War with fields of poppies, grand exhibitions and flag waving up and down the country, David's soldiers invite you to consider the legacy of those wars and the situation people find themselves in now.

This one hour workshop is a chance to hear from David who will discuss the background behind the installation and how it has developed throughout the year.

State of the Nation is generously supported by Coventry University.
