The city that keeps watch over itself.

Will you be taking part in The Hull Vigil? Bookings go live on Monday 1 March at 10am.

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 one of only three UK partners of the Europe-wide IN SITU Network.

Core projects

Digital Democracies is a national project exploring the intersection of technology and public space. The project brings together partners from across the UK – civic, cultural, HE and tech sectors with artists to explore new experiences in our shared public social spaces – real world and online- where we live, work, visit and play.

We’re proud to be a commissioning partner of Global Streets, a national programme that is inspiring local change through unforgettable international outdoor arts experiences coupled with targeted engagement activities.

Freedom Festival would not be possible without the 130 incredible volunteers who give their time every summer to welcome artists and visitors to the festival and to the city.

For 2019 we saw the eyes of the festival through our first ever Young Reporters, as part of an exciting new partnership with Ron Dearing UTC.

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.

We’re proud to be a commissioning partner of Without Walls, a network of festivals that brings fantastic outdoor arts to audiences across the UK.
