The British Museum

The British Museum

Founded in 1753, the British Museum was the first national public museum in the world. From the outset it was a museum of the world, for the world, and this idea still lies at the heart of the Museum’s mission today. The collection tells the stories of cultures across the world, from the dawn of human history, over two million years ago, to the present. Objects range from the earliest tools made by humans and treasures from the ancient world to more recent acquisitions from Africa, Oceania and the Americas, the Middle East, Asia and Europe, as well as the national collections of prints and drawings, and coins and medals. In addition to work in London, the Museum takes part in an extensive programme of loans and tours, both across the UK and throughout the world.

Absolutely Cultured

Absolutely Cultured

Built on the foundations of the company that delivered Hull’s year as UK City of Culture 2017, Absolutely Cultured continues to play a leading role in Hull’s future. The company has a mission to create ambitious, surprising, and compelling artistic work that brings people together and connects communities. As a commissioner of world-class programming aimed at residents and visitors, Absolutely Cultured works strategically with partners both inside the city and across the North, UK and internationally to cement Hull's reputation as a centre for culture and creativity. Alongside the commissioned work, the company also programmes and runs Humber Street Gallery, now a firm fixture in the ever-evolving Fruit Market area and is also developing the award-winning City of Culture Volunteer Programme, continuing the opportunity to put people at the forefront of the city's iconic voice. Absolutely Cultured is an independent organisation with charitable status continuing the work of Hull 2017 Limited. Absolutely Cultured is funded by a range of partners including public bodies, National Lottery distributors and local and national businesses. Key contributions are from Hull City Council and Arts Council England; Spirit of 2012 and Nesta support helps deliver the volunteer programme; and Wykeland and Rollits are the company’s corporate partners.
