Right on Your Doorstep
We bring high-quality arts experiences to people in neighbourhoods across Hull, Right on your Doorstep, using our ingredients of mixing the familiar with the unfamiliar to engage and excite. Basically we’re not happy if we’re not out and about having a good chat and surprising people.
People are always at the heart of our work. Reaching new audiences, exciting and retaining them lies behind every programming or commissioning decision we make.
The audience member is experiencing Back to Ours from the moment they first come across information about a show or an event. And the experience doesn’t end when the show or event finishes – this is just the start of their journey. Every programming decision, including those taken with and by our Hub members, draws on the programming principles and questions that put the audience at the centre.
Things you might have seen Right on your Doorstep this year include:
High Horse at Big Malarkey, East Park;
Bedtime Stories at PlayDay, Alderman Kneeshaw, Queen’s Gardens and Pearson Park;
