Coventry’s First Arts and Homelessness Festival

Arts and creativity can shine in the darkest of times. It can bring people together and provides opportunity for expression when other parts of life are challenging.

Join us for a week-long celebration of arts and homelessness projects in Coventry, created and co-produced by people who have current or previous lived experience of homelessness. The festival takes place at venues across the city centre between Friday 8 – Saturday 16 October, coinciding with World Homelessness Day on Sunday 10 October 2021.

Events will include:

A full programme including locations, dates and times can be found on the Coventry 2021 Website.

The festival provides a platform for the brilliant work of Coventry’s homeless citizens and creative communities. Co-produced by our Arts & Homelessness Steering Committee, and working alongside the wider forum of organisations, the project aims to nurture and develop skills and provide a legacy of experience to continue this creative work beyond the life of City of Culture.
