Lift Off


Thank you to everyone who came to our ‘Introduction to CHANGE Festival’ evening on Tuesday 15th January. We were over the moon how many people joined us – from all over Coventry and the West Midlands – to hear about our plans for the upcoming festival.

There were a LOT of inspirational people in the room, including the people behind The Pod,  Coventry Refugee and Migrant Centre, Godiva Trust, Institute for Advanced Teaching and Learning (Uni of Warwick), Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience (Uni of Coventry), Feel Good Community, Climate Change Solutions, Purity Brewery, City of Culture Trust, Invisible Dust… and many more!

We shared ideas over homemade-vegan-beetroot-chocolate-brownies (THANK YOU Liam O’Brien for making these) and popcorn and it was truly inspiring to know that there are so many trailblazing change-makers in Coventry who are leading the way to a better future.

This is the start of many more conversations, collaborations and creations together. And if you weren’t able to make it on the night, please don’t be shy about getting in touch to join the growing CHANGE Festival community: ideas@changefestival.org 

Here’s to the future!
