Welcome to a reflection of one of the less – cultural Hull 2017 week so far.
This week has been more about reflecting my challenge and photography content, working on other photography jobs and planning.
This photograph is a view from Princess Quay, in a distance you can spot one of the City Of Culture installations ‘I Wish To Communicate With You’ initial concept by Italian artist Silvio Palladino.
The installation has involved the majority of the Thornton Estate’s 600 residents, living in 240 homes.
This photograph is part of my future involvement in City Of Culture and planning my next material.
I have planned some serious “culture stuff”, so here is the list below:
- I will be creating City Of Culture Slinkachu [read more about what is Slinkachu here: Slinkachu.com Street Installations and Photography]
I have tried Slinkachu in my second year at Uni, so I DEFINITELY KNOW WHAT I AM DOING – NOT. I am waiting for my “little” people to arrive and in the meantime, preparing props and planning locations.
- I am planning to meet up with City Of Culture Volunteers. All the volunteers involved in City Of Culture are so important, so I want to hear their stories and celebrate the work they do. This was to happen this week, but volunteers are very busy, so I am patiently waiting.
- I am planning to visit Lines of Thought – A British Museum Touring Exhibition at Hull University and see the history for myself. I have discussed the exhibition with other “cultured” people that have seen it and apparently is a moment to be appreciated.
- One of the really interesting things not just to photograph, but get involved in definitely is RE-MADE IN HULL in ScrapStore Community Centre Hall, Hull. For this one me [and you] need to book your attendance

I am thinking about 4th of February, so it could be awesome if someone would like to join me. Free lift to and from location available upon request :)
- All things Hull History Centre and Revolutionary Makers Workshop
The main focus will be to get there in general, have a look at “Hull Characters” exhibition.
more to come….
