Sixty new community projects, ranging from photography and exhibitions to music and food festivals; and choral and orchestral concerts to audio-visual installations, will receive funding to become an important part of the Hull 2017 programme.
Working with local people of all ages to create new artistic work, events, installations and other activity throughout 2017, this innovative scheme is the result of funding through the Hull 2017 Creative Communities Programme, which was set up to celebrate, nurture and support local talent and develop opportunities for emerging artists. A total of £750,000 is being invested in the programme.
We are one of the winning projects and are absolutely delighted! We are looking forward to working with all our children, families, neighbours and the wider community.
As part of Hull 2017’s ‘Freedom’ chapter, Priory Primary School and the local community ( we hope!) will host a day-long festival for the local community, led by the school’s own ‘City of Culture Junior Committee’ of pupils. The People of Priory festival will feature local bands, community groups, food, drink and much more.
With performances from several artistic and community groups and each child at the school presenting a piece of art, the day promises to be an unforgettable cultural celebration to be enjoyed by the whole community.
WE’D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE INVOLVED
