Creative Hull is a weekend long celebration of the creativity and culture that Hull has to offer, taking place from the 16 -18 July 2021.
Occupying disused shops and buildings, outdoor spaces, existing venues and taking place digitally, Creative Hull is a moment to celebrate our city’s culture and the role it can play as we emerge from this last year – responding to the changes brought and shaping a new optimistic future.
Originally planned for 2020, we’ve worked hard to make sure we can go ahead in a considered and socially distanced way – and we’re really excited to be able to bring some much-needed joy to the city this summer!
What to expect
We’re currently working with other local organisations to shape the programme, though we can already expect it to feature Hull-based theatre company Middle Child, exhibitions at Humber Street Gallery including In My Room by artists Hannah Quinlan and Rosie Hastings, and Pride in Hull will be hosting a pop-up hangout safe space. We’ve also commissioned an interactive public artwork to be erected in the city centre, developed with the people of Hull by Morag Myerscough.
And that’s just for starters, as we’ll have even more exciting details to share in the coming months!
Can I get involved?
Yes! Local artists, community groups and cultural organisations who may already be planning an activity that could take place over that weekend – whether that’s a gig, an exhibition, a craft fair, a book club event or a children’s activity – are invited to complete an online form to be included in the Creative Hull campaign and its listings.
