A festival without rules.
Curated by an unstoppable generation.
Welcome to Limitless – it’s time to celebrate the creativity and ambition of the city’s young people. The future artists, innovators, makers and rule breakers.
This year No Limits, Hull 2017’s Learning & Participation has unleashed creativity in the classroom and taken risks never seen before. This joyful and colourful celebration showcases this work in a collection of live art, film, poetry and discussion, showing that there really is no limit to what young people can achieve.
Curated from schools taking part in the programme, we’ve turned a disused building into a pop up café, gallery space, cinema and library.
Drop in, sit back, have a chat and a cuppa. Be amazed at what happens when you nurture the creativity of young people.
A generation expecting more. When they come together they are a tidal wave, a surge, a force of nature that can’t be stopped.
Limitless. This is just the beginning.
Monday 27 November – Thursday 30 November, 12pm – 6pm
Friday 1 December – Wednesday 13 December, 12pm – 9pm

Anna Bean’s work recalls a long tradition of staged narratives and theatrical role-playing in art. She utilises the camera and various tools of the cinema and theatre, such as makeup, costumes, props, and scenery, to create dream-worlds filled with gothic horror and surreal humour. Anna is inspired by cinema, theatre, television programmes and old masters. Come along to make some costume and props and take a trip into the future… visit www.bluebeany.com for more information.
