Before the Coventry Cultural Policy and Evaluation Summit, we encourage postgraduate students and early career researchers to join us for a networking afternoon/evening, designed to get together in an informal and relaxed environment to get to know each other, gear us up, provide context and get us ready for the summit.

We will be joined by artists and researchers and will be led by the Cities of Culture Early Career Research Network within the AHRC Cities of Culture Network.
