Hull Story Map | Joanna Walsh

17 August – 6 September 2020

This is the Hull Story Map. It’s a map made of stories, or memories, of feelings, of words. Please add to the map by typing in a postcode and write a word, a sentence, a paragraph, a memory, a sensation, an event, an emotion. Together we’ll build Hull online as a city made of stories.

Humber Mouth is delighted to have a new project from lockdown for Freedom Festival 2020.

Writer and artist Joanna Walsh is our Digital Writer-in-Residence and has created the Hull Story Map, a brand new interactive project which wants to gather your words about Hull.

Joanna has also written an essay – Place Writing – to accompany the map. You can read that here.

The map will be only be live for a short time (17 August – 6 September) so make sure you get your contributions in!
