A new round of projects led by community leaders in Coventry is being put into action as part of Coventry City of Culture 2021.
A group of 10 new Community Connectors will be co-creating cultural projects within their communities, developing and collaborating on projects which create meaningful participation opportunities for community members, following the success of the first cohort launched last year.
The programme, which is being delivered by Coventry City of Culture Trust and 64 Million Artists, gives community leaders the platform to engage with their local area by improving and using community spaces, putting on a community event, or creating a piece of art.
It is part of the Love Coventry programme, funded by the National Lottery Community Fund, which takes Coventry UK City of Culture 2021 to neighbourhoods and streets across the city.
The latest round of projects aims to work directly with people living in Wyken, Foleshill, Longford, Bablake, Upper Stoke, Canal Basin, Binley, Willenhall, Stoke Aldemoor, Whitley, Cheylesmore and other city communities.
The first group of participants delivered projects in Foleshill, Henley Green, Finham and Stivichall, Earlsdon, Stoke Aldemoor, Holbrooks and the city centre.
