Culture at your fingertips: New website connects residents to Hull’s creative scene

A new website dedicated to helping local residents engage in the city’s cultural activities has today been launched.

CultureHull will act as a hub for all things culture across Hull. Whether that’s local events happening across neighbourhoods, local blogs and case studies, latest jobs in the cultural sector, as well as funding and event opportunities and local news.

The site will work alongside the existing site which has traditionally been targeted at visitors to the city.

Garry Taylor, assistant director for major projects, culture and place, said:

CultureHull will act as a one-stop shop for any residents wanting to find out what is happening culturally in their neighbourhood.

“It offers the opportunity for people and organisations in Hull involved in any cultural activity, to submit all of their events, news and opportunities to be listed.

“The site will be as good as the content people add to it, so we are encouraging local people and organisations to get involved and help us to build a busy and successful place for local people to access local arts information.”

Paul Smith, artistic director & CEO of Middle Child and Chair of Cultural Collisions, said:

“Anyone who has spent time in Hull knows how much incredible culture happens here. This city has a plethora of brilliant organisations, projects and initiatives.

“Now, with the launch of the CultureHull website, that culture is easier to keep track of, ensuring it is more accessible to the people of Hull than ever before.

“The benefits are huge for cultural organisations too, making it easier to communicate directly with local people and shout loudly about our events.

“I’m excited to see the transformational effect this website will have on how we communicate as a city and am in no doubt that it will quickly become a vital resource which demonstrates the quality, breadth and diversity of culture here in Hull.”

All submissions to the site will be assessed before being posted, with larger events also added to the existing Visit Hull site.
