Creative Hull is a celebration of the homegrown arts and culture that Hull has to offer.
It is a city-wide festival that will show the existing high-quality artistic talent that Hull is known for. At the same time, there will also be new commissions and curation from artists established in the region and across the nation. Much of the planned activity will use disused shops and buildings across the city centre, working with local artists to bring their proposals and these spaces to life.
Creative Hull will also reach across different neighbourhoods. We want to energise our streets, public spaces, community buildings and arts venues by encouraging local people to get involved and organise their own exciting activities in their area.
Everyone in the community is welcome to take part, plan an event and discover something new through arts and culture!
