Most people can pinpoint one experience of art – a piece of music, an image, a film, a fashion statement – that impacted upon their life, made them stop in their tracks and consider their situation. Art has an influence upon our lives, moving us, changing us, forming our identity, shaping the culture of our communities.
This project explores art’s impact upon individuals in Hull, adding to the current conversation in the city about the value of the arts to our communities, and revealing untold stories of how art has moved those who, in turn, influence our city.
Moved is an Untold Stories commission for Hull City Library Service and Art for Hull.
