Hull businesses are being encouraged to take advantage of the opportunities that City of Culture will bring in 2017.

Hull & Humber Chamber of Commerce is holding a free breakfast event on November 17 to bring together firms with the arts and culture sector, whatever their size.

The plan is to create a network of culture ambassadors, with people working in arts and culture demonstrating the kind of support they need to make their projects successful.

Firms looking to explore cultural opportunities will be able to learn from companies that are already enjoying the benefits of investing in the sector.

The Chamber of Culture breakfast forum, which is taking place at the Mercure Hull Royal, will offer insight on business engagement from the team behind the award-winning Larkin with Toads project, hearing about its influence on the Australian project Hello Koalas.

The event will also look ahead to the forthcoming Amy Johnson Festival and encourage companies in the Hull and Humber area to start planning now for the launch of the City of Culture business club early next year.

    So, I was right, the shitty of culture is for those with the cash….the poor old residents will get a floor show, but won’t see any of the benefits, except by accident.
