Please come and join us to learn about Coventry City of Culture's Creative Producing Team and the important role played by both universities. You'll discover the themes that the production team are working on and how you can get involved. We want to help connect people and explore existing/new research and ideas that feed into and support these broad themes

Dynamic: Youthful, green, playful, industry pioneers, connected and smart. Did you know the Green Party was founded in Coventry?

Caring: Healthier, safer, welcoming and inclusive, working with the arts to address mental health, loneliness, exploitation of young people, isolation, poverty and homelessness.

Collaborative: Local, co-created, citywide and equal, working with local communities, family hubs, local business, high streets and estates, housing associations and schools. Supporting volunteering and encouraging activism.
