Event description
Our Place at the Table - An Open Conversation exploring equalities and human rights in Coventry

About this Event

Our Place at the Table originally formed part of Fly the Flag week in June, marking the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The sold out event featured human rights provocations from residents in the city, project presentations as part of our #HumansOfCov campaign and speeches from organisations and individuals who work to protect and uphold our human rights every day.

Following up to the success of the previous event we are now hosting an open conversation exploring equalities and human rights in Coventry, in the form of a long table event. This FREE ticketed event provides the opportunity for residents across the city to come together and discuss what human rights mean to you in 2019.

Equalities, peace and Human Rights sit at the heart of this global city of cultures, and this event is an opportunity to celebrate the 'International Day of Peace' and respond to what Peace means to the people of Coventry.

Our Place at the Table will be a feast of food and creativity bringing together artists, activists, academics and the wider community for an open and honest conversation.

Food and networking will open the event as participants are invited to come together sharing stories, thoughts and feelings over lunch before a brief introduction and the main long table event.

We welcome you to bring your thoughts, experiences and vision to what promises to be an inspiring event taking place in the heart of the community.

There will be 6 main conversation contributors who will begin chats, providing initial provocations and taking conversations further.

They are:-

• Tyler Campbell (Founder of FRIDAYS)

• Richard Hayhow (Open Theatre)

• Richard Dickson (Coventry Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations)

• Representatives from Coventry Asylum and Refugee Action Group

• Tamsir Gaye (Positive Youth Foundation)

• Georgina Egan (Ego Performance Company)

A delicious buffet will also be provided.
