YADA YADA NOISE @ Creative Hull
ft. Joe Hakim

YADA YADA NOISE is recording a series of podcasts to document and showcase some of the amazing artists, activities and events that will be taking place as part of Creative Hull, July 16-18.

After starting life as a monthly Spoken Word Open Mic at Hull College in 2020, YADA YADA NOISE was founded in response to the challenges of Covid-19. After postponing all gatherings and events, founder Alice Godber decided to expand the project into a digital platform that aims to encourage collaboration in Hull’s creative sector between young and mature artists, harnessing multiple disciplines and creating opportunities for students to connect with Hull’s wider cultural community.

Working in association with writer and producer Joe Hakim, YADA YADA NOISE at Creative Hull will bring you interviews, features, listings and highlights from the celebrations.

Alice Godber, founder of YADA YADA NOISE says ““I created the platform because of my love for working with creative people, I want to facilitate collaboration through a variety of projects. I’m excited and proud to be working alongside Joe Hakim for the Creative Hull Festival. It’s a great opportunity to speak to the artists involved and showcase local talent.”
