Register to MiFriendly Cities closure event!
For three years, the MiFriendly Cities project has been delivering an exciting programme of 31 activities and programmes in the West Midlands, UK, designed to help create cities where the voices, skills and passion of refugees and migrants flourish - so that all branches of the community are fully invested in its future, and the social and economic fabric of the region is strengthened.

On March 10th, the Project will be holding its online event 'Share Our Journey' - a day of practical, experience-based insights, sharing what we've learned from the MiFriendly Cities project so far through a series of interviews, workshops, a discussion panel, and the launch our new exhibition and project film.

On the day you will be able to:

  • Hear live from public bodies and our participants
  • Get exclusive access to content and resources sharing our activities and impact
  • Watch our brand-new film about the project and visit our new online exhibition
  • Attend 2 workshops to ask questions and gain deeper insights on topics you are most interested in
  • Attend a Discussion Panel and ask questions live

We very much look forward to hosting you, alongside Birmingham, Coventry and Wolverhampton City Councils, and 8 other project partners and our project participants.

In the meantime, if you have any queries, please email mifriendlycities@coventry.gov.uk
