• Summary
  • Venue


Rotterdam’s WORM – an art collective and venue ‘born under the starts of punk, Dada, Fluxus and hacktivism’ – will make the Dutch dash to Hull and take up residence on Humber Street from the 23rd to the 25th of June.

WORM’s three-day residency is based primarily around the theme of intercity collaboration. And WORM will interact with human and non-human elements alike in Hull; collaborating with churches and institutions, underground archives, fanzines, museum artefacts, musicians, boxers, performance artists and actors and poets. The daytime programme will be mainly based round workshops, with presentations, theatre and exhibitions. Live cabaret and theatre, and music-based activities liven up the nighttime.

WORM Rotterdam’s full programme for its residency at Humber Street Gallery can now be made known.  (Programme may be subject to last minute changes.)


WORM Pirate Bay ‘Luvs Hull’

New Babies for Art! Dutch love bombs! WORM’s famous open source underground archive, The Pirate Bay, indulges in a weekend-long experimental RADAR* love-marathon with some of Hull’s choicest underground archives.

The Performance Bar Plugs You In!

We will plug you in to Rotterdam! WORM’s infamous 360 degree” stage/bar brings a colourful cast of actors, performance artists and young talent, who, collectively, showcase the bustling, theatrical nightlife of the Port City.

WORM in the Boxing Ring

During the Humber Street Galleries residency, WORM will create a live installation and show, every day, built up through workshops, bringing the seemingly incompatible forms of art and boxing together.

Lewsberg – Making Local Jam(s)

At Hull 2017, the band will become Humber Street’s house band, jamming with locals (musicians or not!) or creating new material to play on the spot!

A Strange Light on Humber Street

Based in Rotterdam Co2RO – aka Marco Broeders – is a well-known visual artist who creates specialist lighting events using light-emitting diodes and analogue machinery.

Life and Loss at Sea

Jacco will make work “on-the-spot” – both at Humber Street Galleries and in the city – using the role of Christianity and the Church in the lives (and deaths) of sailors, and those who are in any way affected by the tides of the sea.

“Whale Culture” in Rotterdam and Hull

Whales in a peepshow? Boxes hiding history? That’s the plan for one of the exhibitions at Humber Street Gallery, presented by two Rotterdammers, Niek Hilkmann and Mathijs van Oosterhoudt.
