City of Culture celebrations get underway

The opening event of Hull’s City of Culture celebrations, ‘Made In Hull’, launched on Sunday 1st January to crowds of thousands.  It began with a festival of art and installations in the streets of Hull’s city centre which run for a week, the focal-point of which was Zsolt Balogh‘s beautiful projection project ‘We Are Hull’.

The crowd counted down to the launch and fell silent as they watched Hull’s history – from pilot Amy Johnson’s solo flight to Australia in 1930, through the Blitz to the present day – projected around the square onto the blank facades of the City Hall, Ferens Art Gallery and Maritime Museum.   The film featured a soundscape from sound designer Dan Jones.
