Who we are

Absolutely Cultured is a cultural development organisation passionate about the ability of arts and culture to be a vehicle for change. We seek out opportunities to strengthen Hull’s cultural landscape and the role it can have in the city’s growth and development; for the benefit of all its residents.

It’s our mission to actively enable Hull’s cultural development, bringing together collective voices, expertise and talents to be greater than the sum of our parts. To facilitate social, economic and cultural change by placing the arts and creativity at the heart of people’s lives, their ambitions and aspirations.
