RISING invited the people of Coventry and the local region to bring family, friends and guests to celebrate our city of peace and reconciliation and to honour peacebuilders across the world.

As RISING 16’s cultural climax and “after-party”, this free and open-to-all event provided an opportunity for delegates and wider audiences to experience the RISING 16 themes through the arts; and to watch, listen and dance to some of the UK’s best talent from Coventry and beyond.
