Remixing the City of Culture

In the run up to the Cultural Transformations conference, the University of Hull, in partnership with Hull 2017, will host a participatory remixing or hackathon event. The two-day event invites participants to draw upon data and outputs from Hull UK City of Culture 2017 to discover untold stories and fresh angles. On day one, delegates will explore data sets and archives
to identify remix projects and themes. On day two, discoveries will be turned into stories and displays, which will be shared with conference delegates in the From Art to Archive exhibit.

Very limited places are available for interested individuals – designers and UX/UI specialists are particularly welcome. To register your interest please email

Remixing the City of Culture will take place from 9.00 to 18.00 on 13 th to 14th March.
