INTERNATIONAL CHANGEMAKERS BURSARY - DIGITAL COLLABORATION

Coventry UK City of Culture 2021 has been inspired by the city’s pioneering activism in inventing the twin cities movement after WW2, extending the hand of friendship, and building cultural partnerships with cities around the world.

Our programme will reflect the internationalism of the city, as a home of diverse migrant communities and a place of sanctuary for refugees and asylum seekers, its role in peace and reconciliation, and its position as a dynamic, revolutionary city tackling global social issues.

Coventry has always been a city of movement and exchange, a city of changemakers.

Delivered in partnership with the British Council, the International Changemakers Bursary - Digital Collaboration aims to support the creation and development of 10-15 partnerships and projects between changemakers in Coventry and their international counterparts.

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.
