Digital Exhibitions

Pride in Our City

Pride in Our City is a community-led digital exhibition created as a direct response to the Covid-19 lockdown. Hull Museums reached out to our audiences to digitally connect with individuals at home to create something special to celebrate Pride 2020.                                                                                         

All the content that makes up Pride in Our City has been submitted or created during the lockdown. Participants have recorded their own videos, capturing their own voices, to share their experiences and thoughts of Pride in Hull. Others have shared text, poems, and images - all to illustrate what Pride means to them and the importance of having Pride to our city. To explore the digital exhibition please visit www.prideinourcity.co.uk

But why stop there? The digital exhibition was just the start, and the Pride in Our City project continues.

Hull Fair

 

This exhibition draws together photographs, stories and artwork submitted by showpeople and the people of Hull, to celebrate a fixture in the city’s calendar.

With input from school children, community groups in Hull, social media, residents of Walton Street and showmen families from Hull and beyond, the exhibition has tried to gather a broad spectrum of opinions and memories to show exactly what it is that makes Hull Fair so special.
