COVENTRY MUSIC BOARD 

Coventry is a music city. Whilst Coventry boasts a whole array of talent, it faces many of the same challenges the music sector is facing in cities across the UK, particularly given the impact of the COVID19 pandemic. To enable Coventry’s music sector to flourish Coventry City of Culture Trust (CCCT) is supporting the creation of a Coventry Music Board, a democratically elected group of members who will drive forward change within the city.

The Coventry Music Board will be made up of 10-14 representatives from Coventry’s music sector (those living on working within a CV postcode). This could include, but is not limited to, musicians, music venues, community centres, promoters, music educators, labels, studios, technicians, publicities etc.

Application deadline: 6th September 2021.
