Magda Moses, Artistic Director, NICE, said: ‘’Hull has a very rich and fascinating heritage and history which, we believe, should be celebrated by all. The idea of the Hullitage project is to bring together people from different backgrounds and show them what our city has on offer.’’ ‘’The map is what our city needs to continue the legacy of Hull2017, it will welcome all of Hull’s visitors with an accessible and interactive experience. Creating an all inclusive platform that provides visitors with the opportunity to fully explore Hull without boundaries.”
Anna Grzybowska, Executive Director, NICE, said: ‘’The Hullitage Map serves as the force for achieving outcomes beyond the collective contributions of individuals. Our map is an example of a meta-physical platform where we channel the power of teamwork, elevate unity and give opportunity for diverse leaders to orchestrate, in pursuit of collective dreams being transformed and achieved. We invite residents and organisations to join and co-create this marvellous idea throughout its continual improvement.’’
National Initiative for Creative Education (NICE) has been serving the local community as a multicultural hub for Hull and East Yorkshire. Through our engagement, participatory and artistic work, we create the bridge between indigenous and multi-ethnic population of the UK. At the heart of our vision are artistic, educational and mental health projects aiming to break barriers, create an integrated and cohesive community and support people’s wellbeing.
We believe that engaging people in the creative and cultural activities allows them to live in a diverse, inclusive and harmonious society. Hullitage is a unique, participatory and engagement project that introduces newly arrived migrants into the culture, history and heritage of Hull. Participants learn about different people, places and events linked with Hull, visit places and record their experience in either video, writing or podcast. They all are encouraged to speak their language to engage more people from their community. To find out more visit www.nice4all.co.uk
