Invitation of Interest in Public Realm Projects

As part of the UK City of Culture readiness programme and to fulfill the partnership legacy ambitions beyond 2021 - we are inviting all West Midlands, national (UK) and international creatives to submit their interest, proposals, and/or portfolio, in order to be considered within call-outs for current and upcoming public realm regeneration schemes, citywide redevelopment projects and cultural programmes.

The aim is to create a diverse catalogue/database of work and a register of interested artists that can be considered by Coventry City Council and the Coventry City of Culture Trust for future projects.

We are keen to engage local artists to help us create beautiful places for the people of Coventry in what promises to be an exciting year. The nature of the projects is varied and covers all elements of public realm, from garden projects to construction projects, from lighting to street art. We want to talk to you whatever your speciality and whatever your size. Projects will range in budget from very small to several hundred thousand pounds – and we want to invite you to become part of this journey during 2020 and as we progress into 2021.

For more information about the project and how to register interest, please see the full Invitation of Interest document.
