Coventry City of Culture Trust has appointed Heart of England Community Foundation to manage a fund that supports projects which deliver cultural activities in Coventry, support local individuals or organisations or develop ideas or new partnerships.

Warwick Creative Exchange and Coventry University are together offering four £2,000 awards to projects bringing together Warwick and Coventry academics with cultural organisations in Coventry to develop public engagement activities with impact which invite the general public to participate and respond.
The Awards are partially linked to Coventry City Council’s work with the Arts Council of England Great Places scheme, Place, Heritage and Diversity in a Modern UK City, administered through the Coventry City of Culture Trust. Great Places seeks to enable cultural and community groups to work more closely together and to place heritage at the heart of communities.
Supported by the University’s Connecting Cultures GRP and Coventry University, and building on the work done by initiatives including the Warwick Commission on the Future of Cultural Value, the City of Culture partnership, and Coventry City Council’s Cultural strategy, these awards invite applications for either complete small-scale work or groundwork for larger projects.
