Ships in the Sky is a film, oral history and exhibition project by artist and filmmaker Esther Johnson, supported by Hull Libraries and funded by the James Reckitt Library Trust.
The project will explore Hull’s relationship with the giant Alan Boyson mural Three Ships – one of the largest pieces of public art in the UK – also looking at the social history of the building where it currently resides. The life of this iconic building in Hull City Centre has moved from the Co-operative society to a British Home Stores and once contained the Skyline Ballroom, later Bailey’s nightclub and then Romeo’s and Juliet’s.
Hull libraries offer access to books, music and video DVDs and CDs, newspapers and magazines, plus a wide range of other material. They offer information about the library service in different languages, large print and Braille on request. Books written in community languages are available at the Hull Central Library and other local libraries.
