These open conversations are a chance to come and talk about the breadth of culture happening in the city. It’s a platform for sharing ideas, networking with different people, building partnerships and bringing together the city in conversation. This is an open invitation for all Coventry residents and businesses to come and have a conversation together.

Each Culture Conversation will have a set theme as well as space for open conversations.

These events will be held on mornings and evenings and will not be ticketed, please be aware some might be particularly busy. BSL interpreters will be present and these events are hosted in wheelchair-accessible spaces.

Please note: Catering (food/drink) will not be provided but can be purchased on-site at events run at Alfred’s Cafe (please note, not all events will be run at the Cafe and as such food purchases may not be possible).
