Coventry 2021 Roundtables

The Coventry City of Culture Trust has launched a series of Roundtables.  These are spaces for conversations and idea generation ahead of the City of Culture year.

Regular Roundtables are essentially facilitated public discussions designed for those interested and engaged in the specific sector or industry and service providers. Each discussion will be themed. Initial sessions are running from October 2018 to March 2019.

All talks will be hosted by Chenine Bhathena, Creative Director, City of Culture Trust and facilitated by industry experts.  They will include breakout discussions around what ‘the role of culture is in a modern and diverse Britain’ and how we can use our youth, culture and creativity to promote innovation and activism in Coventry, across the nation and the globe.

The Roundtables are listed below – they are free to attend, but booking is essential as there is a maximum capacity of approx. 50 people per session.
