Community Brand

What’s your story?

It’s not too late, we’re only just getting started.

We’re half way through 2017 and fabulous things are happening in communities across the city. From sprucing up dull garage blocks and creating works of arts in community gardens, to giving an artistic voice to Hull’s homeless community, our Community Brand champions are continuing to work their magic, playing an integral part in Hull’s story.

It’s not too late to join our gang and be part of the Hull 2017 action. If you have a story to tell and are doing something positive in your community, on your own or in a group, we would love to hear from you.

We have over 100 Community Brand champions who are doing really wonderful things. Want to see what some of our them have been up to? Click on the links below.

We love hearing from people who want to be part of the Community Brand, but there are a few people who aren’t able to use the brand:

  • Promoters of artistic or cultural events and private-sector organisations that are not official funding or creative partners of Hull 2017.
  • Charities or non-profit organisations using Hull 2017 for fundraising or campaigning.
  • Organisations not ethically aligned to Hull 2017’s values.
  • Anyone using the brand for political, financial or personal gain.
