CVX Festival Positive Youth Foundation
CVX Festival is a pioneering three-day arts activism festival curated by young people in the city around the themes of community, unity and social change. CVX will bring together local, regional and national artists using their platform as role models to stand up for young people and take a stand against violence.
Launching to coincide with International Youth Day on 12 August, the festival will empower young people across Coventry to creatively tell their stories. Through a programme of talks, workshops and performances it will also be a stage for exploring the issues facing young people at risk in the city and showing the power of arts and culture in helping to shape their futures.
With Positive Youth Foundation and Coventry City of Culture Trust JAY1 will co-produce live music for CVX with his brand ONE Wave.
