Pride In Our City

FERENS ART GALLERY, Queen Victoria Square, Hull, HU1 3RA

14 Aug - 30 Sep 2021

Free

Family Friendly

Ferens Art Gallery will host a new exhibition this summer celebrating Hull’s LGBTQ+ history and documenting people’s experiences of being part of LGBTQ+ communities in the city.

The exhibition will build upon an online exhibition that launched during lockdown and is still available to view on the Humber Museums Partnership website.

Pride in Our City is an ongoing project which aims to actively increase LGBTQ+ inclusion and representation across all of Hull Museums and the Ferens Art Gallery. The long-term project will be developed authentically with local communities with the view to offering new experiences and perspectives, and to encourage discussion and self-expression.

People can keep updated on the project by listening to Pride in Our City – The Podcast. Host Dan Vo will be chatting with project curators, artists and community members about their involvement in the exhibition. The podcast goes behind the scenes and will reveal some exciting updates about the upcoming exhibition.

People can find out more at anchor.fm/hull-museums, or search ‘Pride in Our City’ on Spotify.
