From May 2021, In Paint We Trust will see new artworks appearing in unique spaces across the city centre and neighbourhoods across Coventry and Warwickshire. Artists will be given opportunities to animate along pathways and walls giving audiences a chance to explore.

In Paint We Trust is not just about decorative works, it also features opportunities to tell the stories that are important to the city through art in our everyday spaces. To spark conversation and allow for communities to get creative with workshop days.
