Walking Forest: A Tale of Two Trees

This weekend, Walking Forest is calling on women to stand up for nature and the future of the planet in a performance action that will move through the streets of Coventry.

From dawn until dusk on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 October, women activists will carry a felled tree through the city centre in an act of love and endurance, raising awareness of the threat to the natural world and asking urgent questions about how we can bring about change.

How will arts, culture and creativity shape a better future for Coventry?

A blog about Art for the People, a Talking Birds project.

We’re hugely excited to be developing Art for the People with the support of Coventry 2021. This is a project that has been a very long time in the gestation - and for a while we didn’t know whether we would be able to convince people to invest and make it happen - because it doesn’t really take the shape of a traditional art project.

 

What is UK City of Culture?

UK City of Culture is a competition run by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. Every four years, cities compete to be awarded the prestigious title. The first UK City of Culture was Derry/Londonderry in 2013 followed by Hull in 2017. The title brings with it a huge amount of opportunity to place your city on a national and international stage.

Coventry was awarded the title in December 2017 after competing against eleven other cities. The bid was won on the strength of our city's diversity, its youthfulness and the opportunities that being so centrally located bring. Coventry's year in the spotlight will run from May 2021 - May 2022.

We, at Coventry City of Culture Trust, are the independent charity responsible, alongside with our partners, to deliver an extraordinary year.
