DKJ Support Hull Pride
We assisted @prideinhull in their application for funding through Hull 2017 City of Culture and the Creative Communities grants provided for next year.
The Pride in Hull event compliments the objectives of the City of Culture perfectly especially in view of the 50 year aniversary of the decriminalisation of homosexuality through the Sexual Offences Act 1967. The event takes place in July 2017, in the middle of the “Freedom” season during City of Culture and organisers hope the event forms one of the centrepieces of the year.
We gave time to ensure Pride in Hull’s grant application matched the objectives of the Creative Communities fund to give the organisation the best chance of success next year.
Announcements to the public regarding successful applications are due in September 2016 and we are crossing our fingers for positive news!!
