September in the Resonate Festival is all about Words and Voices.
Through events on 5 and 19 September, we’ll be exploring the power of words - spoken, written and sung. We’ll be taking up residency in the Assembly Festival Gardens in Coventry this September, with events curated by the Connecting Cultures GRP.
This research asks how the police can use City of Culture as a platform to engage the public, whilst also managing crime and protecting event attendees. The project explores the potential for police partnerships around arts and culture, and how this can support crime reduction and protecting vulnerable people.
Loneliness and solitude, palliative care during Covid-19 and the increasing autonomy and infiltration of artificial intelligence into daily life are just some of the topics featured in the second instalment of Coventry Creates.

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.
