Positive Youth Foundation (PYF) has been given the title Honorary Partner for its contribution to the city’s efforts to land the prestigious title – UK City of Culture 2021.
David Burbidge, Chairman of Coventry’s bid to be UK City of Culture in 2021, said: “Coventry is a city that is, on average, seven years younger than the rest of the UK and we had to reflect that in the bid.
“Winning UK City of Culture is about leaving a legacy and making an impact on the city that will bring benefits for years, if not decades, to come.
“Positive Youth Foundation has been absolutely perfect in bringing us together with young people from a wide variety of backgrounds and in helping us to ensure the youth voice has spoken and been listened to throughout the process.”
Susie Murphy, of PYF, said: “I have no doubt in my mind that Coventry needs to win UK City of Culture in 2021. Coventry could really see a step change socially, economically and culturally if we were to win it.
