Stories from the Shires, Absolutely Cultured
Stories from the Shires celebrates the stories of local people who live and work around the Shires area of Gipsyville through an exciting new soundscape which will be played at the heart of the community.
Volunteers and the local people have been working together since 2019 and Stories from the Shires is the next exciting step in the journey.
Commissioned by Absolutely Cultured, local artist Andy Pea and sound artists The Broken Orchestra have been working with volunteers to interview and record the fascinating stories of local people.
With thanks to Hull Libraries and Love Your Street.
In partnership with KCOM, purpose-built phone boxes will be installed at three of Absolutely Cultured’s project sites on Saturday 17 July: Peel Street park, The Shires area in Gipsyville and Princes Quay shopping centre.
The “Chatty Phoneboxes” will give people the chance to pop in, get connected and chat to someone across the city via a video call.
