As a group we will be producing an online interactive website that will focus on the creative arts scene of Hull. This will report on events, music venues, local artists, new artists and other elements relating to Hull’s scene of culture and art. Currently, the idea stands with us representing the ‘Top 10’ events taking place in the city each month consisting of film, theatre, music, comedy, art and exhibitions. We hope to further the audiences enjoyment of the site by including embedded media such as videos and pictures as well as links to our own online personal portfolios.
So far we have collated research on the major venues within the city.
These include: Hull City Hall, Albemarle Music Centre, Fruit-Space, Hull New Theatre, KC Stadium, Hull Truck Theatre, The Deep, Ferens Art Gallery, Guildhall Collection, Hands on History Museum, Hull and East Riding Museum, Hull History Centre, Hull Maritime Museum, Spurn Lightship, Streetlife Museum and Wilberforce House.
We shall be looking at both one off shows and regular events taking place at these venues as well as annual events such as the Jazz and Comedy Festivals and the Clipper Yacht Race.
The type of content that we would like to include is, Comedy: Sarah Millican ‘Chatterbox’ Hull Truck Theatre, Tuesday 15th March 2011. Music: Hull Choral Union Musical Extravaganza, Hull City Hall, Thursday 31st March 2011.
