Hull’s newest arts & culture venue opens this week at Queens House on Paragon Street dedicated to supporting and celebrating creative enterprise across the region.
Led by Creative ENRG, (the specialist business support programme for arts & culture in Hull & East Riding), Queens House Showcase will provide a vibrant hub for creatives right in the heart of the city-centre. The venue will be a thriving hive of activity – hosting exhibitions, events, talks and a host of activities designed to help creative businesses start, grow & thrive.
Opening to the public this Thursday (May 24th) with an exhibition from William Vinegrad – The Secret Life of Plants – Queens House Showcase will be open to the public every Thursday & Friday between 11am – 4pm (all other times by appointment).
As well as raising awareness of the support available for arts and culture in the region, Queens House Showcase provides an opportunity to meet and network with others across the sector, sign up ENRG’s programme and find out about the exclusive benefits available to Creative ENRG clients.
Since it launched in September 2016, Creative ENRG has been at the forefront of boosting the arts & culture sector across the region – whether it be the giant mural commissions that began with the Larkin Out Festival on Newland Avenue, or its creative industries support events at the Polar Bear, and also supporting local creatives to be part of both Humber Street Sesh and Freedom Festival.
Sir Peter Bazalgette, Chair, Arts Council England recently commented on the wealth of great art & culture in the city and Art’s Council England’s continuing commitment to invest in the city’s artists, organisations and audiences as part of Hull’s UK City of Culture 2017 legacy. Creative ENRG is proud to be part of that commitment.
