Preview event: 6 – 8pm, 18th October, all welcome.
Photographer Jerome Whittingham has spent two years documenting the creative journey of Back to Ours, Hull’s Arts Council England-funded Creative People and Places Project.
This exhibition covers some of the iconic moments he’s captured on the Back to Ours journey, the places he’s been and the people he’s met along the way.
“The time has been a mega-ride of amazing artistic and cultural happenings around the city, shared with a growing passenger list of people welcomed aboard the Back to Ours artistic tour. In this exhibition, I alight stop by stop to look again at moments along the way: the breathtaking, the weird, the unexpected, the hilarious, the ‘did that really just happen?’
I’ve also chatted with many of the people that have joined the excursion as creators and volunteers. These portraits reveal glimpses of how Back to Ours is inspiring the people who encounter it, growing their creative ambition, and presenting – often unexpected – opportunities for artists. When the Back to Ours bus speeds or trundles through the neighbourhood, the place changes – and so do the passengers.
Are we nearly there yet? Actually, we’re not even half way. Check the timetable for more.”
There will be a FREE artist’s talk with this event. You can reserve your place by booking here.
