Hull residents invited to new events to help develop Hull’s Cultural Strategy

Views from residents and businesses across Hull are being sought to develop Hull’s Cultural Strategy further.

A month on from the city’s inaugural cultural conference, Cultural Tides, which 170 local cultural organisations and individuals attended, along with industry experts from across the UK and Europe, Hull City Council is now looking to progress the plans for the new strategy.

Amongst a whole host of workshops, focus groups and an online survey which will be run across the summer, two open engagement sessions are planned at Hull’s Guildhall in early July.

The sessions will be filled with discussions, ideas, creativity, and aim to gather input and insights from the community to shape the cultural future of Hull.

Matt Jukes, Chief Executive of Hull City Council said:

“The Cultural Strategy will shape the future of the sector in Hull over the next five years, so its vital we gather as many thoughts, opinions and ideas as we can.

“Being part of the conversation and sharing your thoughts will help us to create a vibrant strategy, making Hull an even more exciting place to live, work, and play.”

Louise Yates, CEO and Artistic Director of Hull arts organisation, Back to Ours Ltd said:

“It’s so important that local people are involved in the development of the city’s cultural strategy. Culture means different things to different people, so it really can’t be written behind closed doors.

“I’m hoping that this process will bring local people and the cultural sector together to create a new strategy that’s bold and exciting.”

The engagement sessions can be booked now for the morning and afternoon of Tuesday 2 July. They are free to attend.

More sessions will be planned, with details across Hull City Councils’ social media channels – FacebookXInstagramLinkedIn and TikTok.
