Coventry City Of Culture
The UK City of Culture is a competition run by the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) every four years. The award is given to a city which shows commitment to culture and development. Coventry starts its year as the UK City of Culture in 2021. The competition encourages investment and jobs, and enables partnership working between local institutions and community organisations to co-create a programme that can be sustainable over the longer term.
