Coventry City of Culture 2021


What is City of Culture?

Alongside Coventry City Council and Coventry University, Warwick is a partner to the bid and it is great to see the bid taking shape, and the support from arts and cultural organisations, neighbourhood communities, businesses and schools to showcase all Coventry has to offer when it comes to culture and the arts. Warwick will do all we can to support the bid, as we are proud to be part of this great and creative city, at such an exciting time.
Stuart Croft, Vice-Chancellor & President

What next?

The DCMS has announced Coventry as the city which will hold the title in 2021, taking over from Hull's fantastic achievement in 2017. Work now starts to shape our city of Culture.

Warwick is a principal partner supporting the Coventry 2021 bid along with Coventry University and Coventry City Council.

Research led by Warwick and Coventry universities is considered key to enabling a robust programme to inform bid and maximise value and impact of city of culture status. Read more...

We need you to continue to support - whether you are involved with projects through work or socially - we need your help. You can read profiles of staff and students from the Warwick Community who have been involved with the bid and raising the profile of Coventry. Read more...
