University’s Principal Partnership with Hull UK City of Culture 2017 Wins Award

University’s Principal Partnership with Hull UK City of Culture 2017 Wins Award

The University of Hull was announced as the winner of the Industry/Business Collaboration category at the Educate North Awards for our Principal Partnership with Hull UK City of Culture 2017. Marianne Lewsley-Stier, Head of the Culture Campus, attended the awards ceremony in Manchester last week to collect the award on the University’s behalf.

This partnership demonstrated the effective collaboration between the University and the arts industry, ensuring that Hull UK City of Culture 2017 was widely accessible to the entire region. The University worked in partnership with the Hull UK City of Culture 2017 team to shape the extraordinary series of events and welcomed over 88,000 visitors to campus as part of the programme. The partnership also presented students, colleagues and alumni with unrivalled opportunities to gain valuable experience and showcase their expertise through the pivotal roles they played at events both on campus and in the wider city.

The University’s cultural spaces, which brought so many of these inspiring events to life, will continue to be enjoyed by the community and wider region for years to come.

As exclusive academic partner, the University’s Culture, Place and Policy Institute is also leading the evaluation of Hull UK City of Culture 2017, with our preliminary report released earlier this year. The centre will continue to investigate the impact of the year across five key areas including economy; place-making; arts and culture; partnerships and development; and society and well-being.
