RSA Ideas with Coventry City of Culture

Fellowship Event


The Old Grammar School, Coventry

  • Fellowship
  • Fellowship in Action

Coventry City of Culture Trust is creating a space in the city centre for debate and discussion throughout 2021.

Open from early in the morning to late at night and online, it will be hosted by organisations and individuals from right across the nation and the globe, as well as from the communities on our doorstep. At this special collaborative event we’re inviting you to share your ideas about how this emerging space could be used. Who are the voices that should be heard? What are the challenges of our time that need debating? What sorts of ideas might be shared? And how can we make it truly democratic and active?

To apply for a three-minute speaking slot email [email protected] before 10am on Monday 11th November. We’ll confirm the line-up of speakers by Friday 15th November. Support and advice for shaping your lightning talk is available.

Throughout the evening there’ll be opportunities to ask questions and offer support. We’ll also create a Treasury of Ideas to capture ideas that surface on the night.
