We are a Coventry-based company of artists known for our gently provocative projects which explore, and seek to illuminate, the profound and complex relationships between people and place. We're big on access, human connection, social and ecological responsibility, and on nurturing the next generation of artists and theatre makers, particularly in Coventry.

Adjacent to the Daimler Powerhouse on Coventry Canal, The Nest is a home base and shared workspace for Talking Birds – and a place for people to come together to imagine better ways of doing things.

At the Nest we run:

  • our Nest Residency programme - providing time, space and mentoring for artists to explore a new idea
  • 3rd Fridays programme including monthly co-working afternoons, Nestival of Ideas discussions, the Nest Book Club and F13* meetings

Through all of this activity we aim to build a welcoming, values-driven, climate-conscious, regenerative, creative community.
