The Risky Cities project drew on innovative arts and humanities approaches to build climate awareness and help communities become more flood resilient, today and for the future.
The project gathered Hull-based stories of flooding and used them in community-based arts and heritage interventions as well as large-scale cultural productions developed in collaboration with project partners, Absolutely Cultured and the National Youth Theatre.
Hull has a long history of resilience in the face of flood events. As our society faces ever-increasing flood risk, we aim to learn from our communities’ experiences of living with water and communicate these stories in innovative and engaging ways to aid flood resilience.
