Current projects

Absolutely Cultured’s core purpose is to put culture and creativity at the heart of people’s lives to drive Hull’s ambition and aspirations.

Cultural events are an important part of this but there are many other things we do that also contribute to that purpose.

Here’s some surprising, ambitious and imaginative projects we’ve currently got lined up.

Jamie Crewe: Solidarity & Love

Taking inspiration from Radclyffe Hall’s novel The Well of Loneliness (1928), the exhibitions address the provocations of the book, which has had a lasting impact on generations of queer, lesbian, and transgender people.
