Warwick is proud to present 'The Resonate Festival' - 12 months of public events which will include talks and public conversations through to exhibitions, film festivals, walking tours, debates, performances, shows, activities, experiences, panel discussions, creativity, fun, inspiration, and contributions from many of our wonderful community partners.
Coventry City of Culture are looking for 5,000 volunteers throughout the year, to spend as much or as little time as they can, to showcase the city. City hosts will provide a friendly and welcoming face for visitors, guide visitors and event spectators, provide information about the city and events, and support areas of displays and artwork.
In return, volunteers will be rewarded with limited edition uniform, training, rewards from our partners and professional head-shots.
This project aims to understand how, and to what extent the City Host volunteering programme, supporting Coventry City of Culture, impacts on those who volunteer as City Hosts.
