Thinking creatively in a crisis!

The 'Urban Village' project was planning to work with members of the Roma community and a local film maker to produce an exhibition which explores their experiences and identity of working on an allotment in Coventry. As events unfolded it became increasingly evident that the project was no longer viable. They returned to the aims of the project to think about how they could still facilitate the co-creation of a short film with the Roma community so that it was still their voice, telling of their experiences whilst engaging in a creative media process.

Coventry City of Culture Trust invites you to nominate #OurCovHeroes

As the response to #CoventryGlows was so inspiring, Coventry City of Culture Trust is now expanding the celebration of frontline staff, key workers and volunteers.

The Trust is calling on the people of Coventry to nominate their local heroes as part of the ongoing celebration of Year of the Nurse and Midwife. People can nominate their heroes by sharing a picture of them and the reason why they are a local hero. 21 Coventry heroes will then be selected to have a professional portrait taken by a photographer, which will feature in a presentation and special event later in the year.
