What we do

We know culture and what it can do for people, communities, tourism, the economy and civic pride. We have delivered 365 days of transformative culture and the results have been astounding.

As Absolutely Cultured we will build on Hull’s artistic reputation to create a positive and lasting legacy from UK City of Culture.

We will continue a programme of events to appeal to the huge audience we know we have in Hull, as well as being relevant and interesting to visitors and those watching from afar. We will continue to play in the outdoor spaces of our fantastic city and bring in artists who create work which connects people and communities.

But we know, it’s not just about events. It is through the continuation of Hull’s award-winning volunteering programme and by nurturing local talent here in our city through ongoing projects such as Humber Street Gallery and the Hull Independent Producer Initiative (HIPI) programme that we will we create a lasting legacy.

We said that 2017 was only the beginning of the story. It’s absolutely time for the next chapter.

We are born of the city but our legacy is bigger, broader and wider than that.
