Who, what, where & why

Coventry Welcomes Festival is a week-long festival celebrated within the framework of the national Refugee Week refugeeweek.org.uk, on or around the 20th of June of every year.

This year launches the second ‘Coventry Welcomes Festival’ as a brand to promote a more inclusive image of the city with a diverse population. The festival will follow the national theme “Imagine ” as an invitation to explore the lives of those seeking sanctuary and those who have welcomed them – throughout generations. This year the majority of the festival programme will be online.
