Adopt a Pineapple
Our Pineapple Wall in Humber Street Gallery is a unique opportunity to show your support for the gallery and the wider cultural programme of Absolutely Cultured. At the same time contributing to an evolving piece of wall art.
For a £25 donation you get your own square that can be personalised with your choice of name and selected colours. Buy one for yourself to show your support or dedicate one to a friend or relative in celebration. Your square will remain on the wall for a year and can then be renewed if you wish.
With 272 squares up for adoption, your support will contribute to us raising an amazing £6,800 towards keeping Hull’s culture alive. Pineapples mean something to Humber Street Gallery – they’re a reminder of the building’s rich history as a fruit packing factory and Humber Street as a former fruit market.
Once a donation has been made, a member of our team will contact you with a choice of colours and to confirm the name you would like on display.
All income raised will be used to support the work of Absolutely Cultured Limited.
Other ways to support
If you’re unable to offer financial support at this time you can help us grow by following us on social media and spreading the word to your own communities.
Absolutely Cultured is currently funded (up until March 2021) from legacy funds from Arts Council England, DCMS, Hull City Council and Spirit of 2012 (volunteering programme). Additionally, we raise funds on a project basis from a number of funders and partners. This funding enables us to deliver our programme but it doesn’t cover the cost of everything we aim to do. As with all charities, we need to continually fundraise to ensure we can continue to be here to deliver our vision and to help to fulfil the potential of our city.
We need the support of other organisations – and people like you.
We are enormously grateful to all of our supporters, large and small, for helping us keep Hull alive with culture.
