Coventry – on the move for 2021
Coventry has chosen its brand and logo for its year as the UK City of Culture in 2021.
The logo, above, has been designed to illustrate the brand as Coventry Moves, and with it go a dedicated website https://coventry2021.co.uk and video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDEWTbB8-DIhttps://coventry2021.co.uk.
“Living in Coventry for nearly a decade, it's always struck me as a city of change said Laura McMillan, director of operations at the Coventry City of Culture Trust. “A history of invention and reinvention has seen us move from weaving and watchmaking to innovations around transport and green technology. We’ve championed movements, providing platforms for workers, amazing women, political reformers, ravers and refugees.
“Coventry Moves has been developed alongside partners and communities across the city following hours of consultation with thousands of people since this adventure began back in 2015. Our year as UK City of Culture allows us to tell our city’s story, and use everything that makes Coventry unique to shape its future.”
Coventry will take on the biennial mantle of UK City of Culture 2021 in May, running until May 2022, succeeding Hull in 2017 and, the first, Derry-Londonderry in 2013.
