The Art of Resilience, Romilly Tucker

The Art of Resilience is part of a series of five window displays made by local artists and commissioned by Absolutely Cultured, made in response to the theme of how arts, culture and creativity help to rebuild city centres post-lockdown.

You will find the other four located in and around Whitefriargate in Hull city centre. 

Hull is a community of resilient people who adapt to change and pull together in times of hardship, which has been engrained into the city’s DNA. Strength and adaptability play a key role in the driving force behind the recovery of the city after the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Art of Resilience is a brand-new window design for Creative Hull using colour, symbolism and embroidery to craft an eye-catching wall hanging, which the artist hopes will inspire others to be creative. The use of thread represents fragility, and much like our neighbourhoods, when we are bound together, we can become something stronger.

“I would love to invite you to see my window installation for Creative Hull. I have handcrafted a colourful wall hanging inspired by the people of Hull and the resilience they have shown through the adversity of the Covid-19 pandemic.” – Romilly Tucker

Celebrating community and creativity, textile artist Romilly Tucker explores what it means to connect, and how city centres can use creativity to thrive.
