People in Hull can explore the story of how the city has coped, worked and adapted to live through the continuing Coronavirus pandemic through a new exhibition opening Friday January 28. Located in the fruit market, the exhibition is based on a new report by Hull’s Director of Public Health, Julia Weldon, which reflects on life over the past two years.
The report, titled ‘Of Time and Tidings’, tells the stories of 12 local people in their own words, building a rich picture of what happened in the city when everything changed overnight – and has continued to change ever since. The result is an overview of Hull’s response to the virus, from the people and organisations involved in ensuring essential services carried on or adapted through incredibly challenging circumstances.
The exhibition is a chance to see portraits and extracts of conversation with those featured in the report.
The exhibition is located on 66 Humber Street, In order to minimise risk of Coronavirus transmission, exhibits will be placed within a unit on Humber Street, outward-facing, so that visitors can explore from the street without needing to be inside an enclosed space.
The waterside district of Fruit Market really has something for everyone. From places to eat and drink to opportunities for business, as well as festivals and events for those looking for a bit of culture. And with future residential developments already planned and the potential for further independent retail space, the Fruit Market is becoming a place to live, work and play, morning, noon and night.
