Residents Of The Future

Artists: Dorchester Primary School, Westcott Infant School, Woodland Primary School

Creative Director: Anna Bean

It’s not easy to think about the future when you are excited about the present. With a city excited for the future, how can you take pupils along with that conversation without scaring them?

In response to We Made Ourselves Over, 2097 we turned to artists and future thinker to pose this question through art, performance and installation. Rather than propelling them into a future of Brexit and Trump, we used the Science Fiction genre to talk safely and openly about ambitions and a life in Hull.

See the colourful ways that they responded.
