New cultural opportunities in Hull City of Culture

Dance, visual art, photography, theatre, film, music, poetry and more. If you’re in the creative industries in Hull I want to hear from you!

Hull City of Culture 2017What Next Generation Hull is a brand new group being set up to reflect the work of the national What Next movement. The aim of the group is to reach out to young people in the city and enlighten them to the possibilities of a life in the arts. By introducing professionals in the cultural sector to 13-21 year olds locally, through workshops, mentoring and events, What Next Generation Hull wants to turn talent and passion into real life career choices, and nurture the next generation of artists in the run up to 2017.

avatar_cbcb02197545_128I’m looking for cultural professionals willing to volunteer a small amount of time in the next 18 months to the mentoring programme, during which you will be paired with a small group of young people to guide them through the process of developing their own artistic project in your field. Involvement can range from occasional email contact, to fully fledged support at regular group meetings – it’s totally up to you!

Want to be even more involved? What Next Generation Hull is also looking for a Vice Chair for the chapter. This will involve attending national meetings with other Chapter Chairs and taking Hull’s story to others.

If either of these opportunities sound like something you’re interested in, email me at for more info.
