In addition to the programme of sport, there will be a region-wide celebration of the power of art to bring people together and make connections across the UK and Commonwealth, which will include the opening and closing ceremonies, a world-class cultural festival, live sites and the Queen’s Baton Relay. The cultural festival aims to encourage people to discover or rediscover world-class venues and artists in host areas, and find new stories and experiences by young people and emerging talent. It promises to create magic in hidden corners, major new commissions, and installations.
In response to this once in a lifetime opportunity, Warwick District Council’s Arts Section, with the support of Warwick District’s Creative Compact, is working closely with Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games Cultural Programme Team to present its own cultural programme, which aims to showcase and celebrate the incredible arts and heritage venues, artists and creatives in the area – to ensure that the people who live, work and visit the district have a positive and enjoyable experience in the run-up to and following the Games.
