Two Fantastic Exhibitions Opening On Hull Estate This Month
Greatfield continues its journey through the City of Culture year with two more fantastic exhibitions putting the spotlight on nature and marriage on the Hull estate.
Nature, a new exhibition of photography and film created by Greatfield residents, opens today (Monday 4 September).
Then at the end of the month Greatfield Brides and Grooms will show what celebrating the happiest day of your life looks like on the estate.
The amazing collection of wedding dresses and photographs of couples tying the knot, spanning the last six decades, opens on Saturday 30 September at St Stephen's Neighbourhood Centre on Greatfield Estate.
Diane Thompson from St Stephens Neighbourhood Centre said: "We want local children to see how their parents and grandparent got married, often with very little money. Greatfield Brides and Grooms will bring our local stories to life by putting the spotlight on that special day."
The exhibition will run from Saturday 30 September to Thursday 26 October and is open from Tuesday to Thursday 12pm - 3pm.
The event is non-ticketed and free entry.
If you would like your own photographs or wedding dresses included in the exhibition contact Greatfield Big Local on 01482 702390.
Nature is a unique and quirky collection of images and sounds of wildlife opening today at G60 Gallery, St Hilda's Church, Annandale Road.
Greatifeld Resident James Brown said: "It's all about a world of nature seen through our lens'. The reason for putting the exhibition together is to get people out, and to turn a hobby into something we can share with the rest of the world."
Some prints will be available for visitors to order and purchase.
Gallery opening times are Monday to Wednesday 10am - 4pm.
Greatfield 60 is being produced by Greatfield Big Local and is supported by Hull UK City of Culture 2017's Creative Communities Programme.
The year-long project celebrates life on the estate through arts and culture.
Supporting home-grown creativity, professional artists are working with residents to embed a new enthusiasm for creativity through a variety of creative projects including TV, digital media, dance and photography.
Martin Green, Director of Hull 2017, said: "The Creative Communities Programme is taking Hull 2017 right to people's doorsteps ensuring that everybody, from all over the city, has the opportunity to enjoy this special year.
"Greatfield 60 is a wonderful opportunity to highlight the individuals and communities that have been at the heart of one of Hull's biggest estates over the last six decades."
