Event description
Ships in the Sky is a film, oral history and exhibition project by artist and filmmaker Esther Johnson, supported by Hull Libraries and funded by the James Reckitt Library Trust.
The project will explore Hull’s relationship with the giant Alan Boyson mural Three Ships – one of the largest pieces of public art in the UK -  also looking at the social history of the building where it currently resides.  The life of this iconic building in Hull City Centre has moved from the Co-operative society to a British Home Stores and once contained the Skyline Ballroom, later Bailey’s nightclub and then Romeo’s and Juliet’s.
Hull Libraries’ oral history project ‘Untold Hull’ will work alongside Esther to engage a wide range of people and recruit those who may wish to share their personal memories and photographs.  Memorabilia will be curated to form an exhibition that will tour Hull’s libraries over a 12-month period.  A film will be also created and a number of talks and special screenings will form part of the programme.
Ships in the Sky - Behind the Mural is a mini exhibition that will be installed in each library for a month.  There are 2 sessions available at each site where the Untold Hull team will be available to chat with people, record memories, scan photographs and collect memorabilia.
Pop along, share your stories and be rewarded with a beautiful badge!
Come and meet us at Fred Moore Library:
Wednesday 13 November / 10am – 12pm
Thursday 28 November / 2pm – 5pm
