Become a partner

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

None of this would have been possible without the support of more than 80 funding partners whose investment directly enabled a huge change across the city.

As Absolutely Cultured we’re proud to announce the invaluable support of Hull City Council, Arts Council England, Nesta, Spirit of 2012  and local Hull business Rollits. These partnerships will enable us to continue the Hull 2017 legacy until 2020 and beyond.

We are seeking further partnerships with public and private funders, trusts and foundations, businesses and individuals to help us achieve our fundraising targets. In addition to supporting the legacy of Hull 2017, partnership with us offers the opportunity to be 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.
