We are an international gateway to exceptional artists and makers, combining epic to intimate moments in public spaces where artists and audiences meet.

Producers of Hull's Freedom Festival, an international arts festival, we believe artists can change the narrative. With a distinctive creative voice, we enrich our society, giving artistic expression to themes of democracy, identity, human rights and freedom.

We are proud to be one of Arts Council England's National Portfolio Organisations, regarded as a leader in the field of outdoor arts and are part of the artistic directorate of The Without Walls Network and one of only three UK partners of the Europe-wide IN SITU Network. We work in partnership because nothing great is achieved in isolation.

Core projects

Supporting National Writing Day in June, postcards from the Edge is a project exploring the concept of identity, place and the human quest for home.

We are proud to be one of three UK representatives of the IN SITU network, collaborating with 23 other European programmers to nurture artist development and support artists to develop new forms of art in public space.
