About F13

The F13 (or Friday 13th) network – named after the day in 2013 that we first met, because we had to call it something – is a drop in support network for artists, freelancers and small independent companies and creative organisations based in or around Coventry.

It is convened by Talking Birds, the meetings are friendly and informal and all are welcome. Sometimes we have visitors such as City of Culture representatives, our local MPs or organisations who want to find out about the city’s independent cultural sector; and we usually round off with a ‘plugfest’ where people get to share the projects they are working on with each other.
