Summary

Moved By Art Hull is a multi-disciplinary arts project engaging local artists and young people aged 16 – 24 in Hull. The project seeks to encourage the wider community to get involved with the gallery’s latest exhibitions and was formed in partnership with Hull UK City of Culture 2017.

The House of Kings and Queensexhibited as part of Hull 2017’s LGBT 50 programme, is an exhibition of photography by Lee Price. It examines life at a home belonging to a young transgender woman that has become a sanctuary for the local LGBT community in Hull’s sister city of Freetown, Sierra Leone.

Captured in a country where homosexuality remains illegal, Price’s powerful images offer a glimpse into The House, where inhabitants can live without oppression, exposing what it means to be gay in Freetown.

The first half of the workshop will be led by poet James Nash who will walk participants through the exhibition looking at the exhibitions themes and subject matter. The second half will then be a practical workshop in response to the exhibition with visual artist David Cleary, using collage and drawing to create designs that will then be put on show during Hull Print Fair later on in the year.
