Coventry UK City of Culture 2021 was a designation given to the city to acknowledge their cultural heritage and activity, to host a series of events celebrating local culture and to support the improvement of its infrastructure and arts facilities. As part of their celebrations they had the ambition to stage a youth led and focused music event. Under The Playmaker Group, Yaw worked with the youth steering group to design, programme, book and market an event called Take The Square – which was a Black music event that showcased some of the top national artists in the genre including Yungun, Ms Banks, Osh and DJ Ace from BBC Radio 1Xtra alongside local standouts Skatta and Sibby.
