International Youth Day 2021

Today is International Youth Day 2021. 

 

Coventry is a youthful city at its heart, as well as innovative and a city known for change. Youthfulness was one of the six “Energies” at the heart of our signature event, Coventry Moves, represented by spoken word poet John Bernard. 

I (still) Dream of Resting Spaces - A Crash Course in Cloudspotting

A Crash Course In Cloudspotting, as part of our #ReformTheNorm and #Greenfutures programme, will be landing in October, where we focus on the theme of Utopia.

Funded by Unlimited Strategic Commission Fund, National Lottery Heritage Fund with support from Garfield Weston Foundation and Severn Trent Community Fund.

In this blog, artist Raquel Meseguer Zafe of Uncharted Collective shares stories of resting and needing to lay down in public, which in our society, is not yet considered the 'norm'.

As part of sharing this blog Raquel would like to hear from Coventrians who have invisible disabilities, live with chronic pain or are neurodiverse. See the links at the end of this blog to attend workshops and share your stories between 20 - 31 July 2021.

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.
