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.
