Our Evaluation Report for Back to Our Year 2 Phase 1 has been released.

Back to Ours is the Creative People and Places (CPP) programme for Hull.

It is one of 30 CPPs funded by Arts Council England with the aim of transforming access to arts and culture in places where engagement is significantly below the national average.

The findings of the Report include:

  • The Programme continued to deliver despite the restrictions of lockdown and achieved this by using their unique model, adapting their online Right on Your Sofa programme, and taking the audience with them.
  • Through the Hubs, Back to Ours have addressed the issue of the quality of engagement in co-design and co-creation, a key principle of Creative People and Places.
  • The Programme made a difference to people’s lives – increasing confidence to engage in the arts, pride in place and sense of connection, and making people feel valued.

“It is clear that the strength of the Back to Ours' approach and commitment to truly listening to and understanding their audiences is paying dividends”
