Coventry UK City of Culture 2021’s School of Participation (19 – 24 Jul) brings together creative practitioners from Coventry and some European partner cities to gain new skills and experience in creating outdoor participatory events. In collaboration with outdoor arts experts Walk the Plank, this eight-day programme will take trainees on a learning journey, mixing hands-on workshops – in making, movement, music and outdoor events - with opportunities to share best practice, build a network and learn from artists selected from across Europe.
The school is supported by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union and led by Walk the Plank. Coventry is one of 9 international partner cities including Plovdiv 2019 (Bulgaria); Novi Sad 2021 (Serbia), Graz (Austria); Kaunas 2022 (Lithuania); and associate partners Limerick (Ireland); Yerevan (Armenia); Tartu 2024 (Estonia) and Veszprem (Hungary).
