Become a partner

As the company behind Hull’s year as UK City of Culture, we know what can be achieved through partnerships and people coming together to make something happen.

Hull UK City of Culture 2017 set in motion a transformation which saw Hull regain its rightful position in the national consciousness.

But we’re not done yet. Now is the time to build on that success with a continued investment in Hull through arts and culture ensuring its impact long into the future.

Nearly all our events and exhibitions are free to the public but not free to produce. As a registered charity we receive valuable funding from Hull City Council and Arts Council England but we also rely on additional funding from businesses, trusts and foundations as well as individual donors.

By becoming a partner you can demonstrate your commitment to the longer term impact of arts and culture in transforming places and communities. You can become associated with world-class arts and culture, generate brand awareness in Hull and beyond, build relationships and markets, engage and motivate staff, and add value for stakeholders, customers and clients.
