The Art of Resilience, Romilly Tucker

The Art of Resilience was part of a series of five window displays made by local artists and commissioned by Absolutely Cultured for Creative Hull in 2021, made in response to the theme of how arts, culture and creativity help to rebuild city centres post-lockdown.

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 played a key role in the driving force behind the recovery of the city after the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Art of Resilience was a brand-new window design for Creative Hull which used colour, symbolism and embroidery to craft an eye-catching wall hanging, which the artist hoped would inspire others to be creative. The use of thread represented 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 explored what it means to connect, and how city centres can use creativity to thrive.
