Coventry City of Culture
Spirit have awarded £200,000 to the Coventry City of Culture Trust to develop an exciting, community-produced programme in the lead-up to its UK City of Culture year in 2021.
The grant funds four Associate Producer roles, as well as the training and development of four volunteer community evaluators who will help to monitor the progress and impact of the City of Culture year.
The producers are based in four local organisations: Grapevine, an advocacy and support service for those in need; the Coventry Refugee and Migrant Centre; Positive Youth Foundation, a service provider for young people; and the Central England Law Centre, based in Coventry. Each producer works with service users and leaders to develop community-led, inclusive artistic responses to the Coventry’s City of Culture programme.
