Limitless celebrates the fantastic creativity of the next generation of artists, makers and innovators.

The 16-day event is an exciting culmination of the work that children from Hull schools have created.

Hull 2017’s Learning and Participation Programme, No Limits, has been inspiring kids across the city for over a year to unharness their imaginations and produce films, art, performances, poetry and more.

Working closely with a collective of creative directors, the pupils have been encouraged to take risks with their work and aim high.

For example, Opera North have embedded music into the life of students at Adelaide Primary School and Highlands Primary School. The kids were given the chance to learn a range of musical skills.

Artist Dom Heffer has also been working with children at Endike Academy, Ainthorpe Primary School, and Wold Academy. Additionally, the staff and children of Collingwood, Alderman Cogan’s, St Mary Queen of Martyrs and Ings primary schools were encouraged to explore the art of poetry via several creative sessions run by poets Joseph Coelho, Chis McCabe, Kate Fox, Shazea Quraishi and Sophie Herxheimer.

As part of Hull UK City of Culture’s Tell The World season, Limitless presents some of the incredible work at King William House in the heart of Hull’s Old Town.

The building will be transformed into a lively space, equipped with its own cafe, cinema, studio, library and workshop area. It will form the ideal backdrop for creative organisations to run unique activities that allow individuals to explore new ways of learning.

Je Ahn, Director of Studio Weave, kicks off the event with a discussion about his vision of Learning Without Borders. You will then be invited to immerse yourself in the live learning zones. The workshop area will host a variety of activities designed by Fuzzfeed, Artlink, Bransholme Community Arts Enterprise and My Pockets.

Meanwhile, in the cinema, you can sit back and enjoy A Trawl Through Time, which is a fascinating animation created by Bricknell Academy.

The studio space will be busy too, presenting a series of dance films, theatre rehearsals and choir performances.

Hull Libraries has also teamed up with No Limits to assemble a pop-up library. This will be the venue for Hull School of Art and Design’s cultural conversations on Tuesday 5 December.

Lastly, the cafe will be the perfect spot to put your feet up and indulge in refreshments from local coffee shop Two Gingers. Whilst there, delve into a copy of Hello Hull, Hull’s very own learning magazine, or First Story, which shows off some of the city’s most talented young people.

Limitless opens to the public 12pm-9pm every day from Friday 1 December until Wednesday 13 December. Schools can make use of the space from Monday 27 November.
