The Storybox Project – Hull City of Culture

UK City of Culture 2017

June to December 2017

A six month residency in Hull as part of City of Culture 2017. Working in four locations in the city we delivered specially designed Storybox workshops inspired by different elements of the City of Culture Programme. From cutting edge performance, to the best of contemporary visual art, we worked with local organisations to use our unique, imaginative approach to bring people living with a dementia, and the people who support them, right to the heart of City of Culture 2017.  The residencies took inspiration from: The Turner Prize, The Flood by Slung Low, Martin Parr and Blast Theory / We Made ourselves.

We delivered monthly workshops with a range of community organisations in Hull. We also delivered four training sessions, where local careworkers and family carers were able to learn a range of different activities and techniques to engage the people they support in City of Culture.
