How you can help Coventry win City of Culture 2021

City-of-Culture-BACK-THE-BID-asset-3 (1)

This Friday (1 December) the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport will be showcasing Coventry on social media.

This means that the judges and the DCMS will be watching Coventry online for the entire day. This is one of the biggest opportunities in the competition yet. Every city will have their own day and we need to make sure Coventry shouts the loudest!

So how can you help?

  • If you’re not already following the City of Culture bid team, then use these links to follow them on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram
  • Spread the word of this to everyone you know!
  • Starting at 9.30am, post as much content as you can about Coventry – making sure to always use #ThisisCoventry with @Coventry2021 and where appropriate @DCMS and #UKCityofCulture2021
  • This is going to last all day so please help us keep the momentum up. A couple of our competitors have trended nationally and we would love to do the same
  • Video content and pictures are brilliant – record messages of support and tag us in them and encourage everyone else to do the same
  • Are you in work that day? Get all your colleagues involved. Shout about how much you love the city, record it and upload it
  • Is there an article you have read about City of Culture or Coventry you have enjoyed, share it again! Here is a great source – http://www.coventrytelegraph.net/all-about/uk-city-of-culture
  • This is not just on twitter, feel free to post on any channels you use. @Coventry2021 is on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram
  • The bid team want to have an hour where we completely take over social media and have a concentrated effort to be all that anyone is talking about. This will be between 1pm and 2pm on Friday, so if you can only spend a little bit of time on Friday, then 1pm to 2pm is the time to do it.

Having a think about these statements to help with your posts is a great place to start –
