What is GRIT?

GRIT is an artist-led programme of creativity culminating in ‘Art on the Streets‘ August 2024.

A Year long showcase of site specific artworks in Nuneaton blending street and transit art, theatre performance, portraiture and music engaging local people to explore contemporary life and work.


Nuneatons roots are embedded in making and manufacturing, renowned for its quarried stone and solid geology.

A down-to-earth town with a foundation in the arts and innovation.

Despite challenges, Nuneaton has a quiet underground creative scene. It’s time to bring it above ground and onto our streets.

What will GRIT do?

Grit will lead a programme of creative activity culminating in ‘Art on The Streets’ on August 11th 2024 in Nuneaton town centre. A spectacular event of street and transit art, theatre, physical performance, portraiture and music. Showcasing a year long curation of site specific artworks with local people that unearths contemporary life in Nuneaton today.

Over time our building will become a ‘familiar face’ within the town centre – a creative hub with a high street presence intended for project research, engagement, development, exhibition and much more. A space that can visually speak to the public 24/7 utilising large window spaces for art installations, information and invitations made by us to work with you.
