Coventry Creates

Since May 2020, BBC Radio Coventry & Warwickshire (CWR) have scheduled a new weekly show, led by our very own Up for Arts producer Rachel New; Coventry Creates. Each week Rachel New shines a light on Coventry’s everyday creativity - featuring local practitioners, makers, amatuer artists and grassroots creative groups. The show provides opportunities for local people to share their work and gain access to new audiences. Listeners can Upload their work to and get their work featured on the show.
