The Witching Hour, Absolutely Cultured © Tom Arran

Who we are

Responding to need, we create opportunity and space for amazing cultural experiences to happen, for everyone. We are a cultural development organisation.

Our vision

A vibrant, thriving and connected local cultural ecology which makes Hull an even better place to live, work, visit and learn.

Our work

We work to advance cultural opportunities for the city, its residents and for creative practitioners that otherwise wouldn’t exist, to enhance Hull’s cultural offer and increase the relevance and value of the arts in peoples’ lives. 

Based in Hull but globally connected, we have three strands to our work which are distinct but complement one another:


A year-round programme of exhibitions, performance, installations and events that aim to enhance Hull’s local cultural provision.

Social action

We create experiences that matter and culture that leads to change in peoples neighbourhoods.


Giving everyone the opportunity to get creative.
