Where: Kingston Upon Hull
With: Goodwin Development Trust (voluntary/community), Absolutely Cultured (arts/cultural organisation), Hull Culture and Leisure (local authority), Freedom Festival Arts Trust (cultural / leisure trust), ACE, Hull City Council (local authority)

At the very core of Back to Ours is people. We want Hull people to take the lead in choosing, creating and taking part in amazing art experiences, as participants, decision-makers, artists, volunteers and, of course, audiences.

We know that cultural experiences bring communities together, but they also have a much bigger impact on local areas, on people and their families. We aim to make a lasting change in communities, increasing the number of people inspired by the arts, as well as supporting skills development and growing ambition and creativity in neighbourhoods.

Our aims

  • To deliver outstanding arts and cultural experiences with and for the people of Hull, which are open and welcome to all
  • To continue to support the commissioning, production, creation and touring of new, original and inspirational work
  • To engage local people as audiences, participants, creators and commissioners
  • To bring the arts to life in familiar settings as you’ve never seen them before
  • To continue working with creative partners across the city
  • To have fun, throw glitter, and make mischief 
  • To give people and families of all ages a good morning, afternoon or evening night out
