Covid-19 has been devastating for Hull, the UK City of Culture, with many of the city's local businesses suffering - back our call for action now!
A number of local cultural businesses and venues have been badly hit with some closing completely, such as Polar Bear and the Welly club.
Culture is an important part of the city - not only does it provide people a space and place to express themselves and explore their interests, but it carries with it the hopes and aspirations of Hull as a city. It also draws people to the city from across the UK and beyond, supporting our local economy.
If Hull is going to bounce back from Covid-19, then it will need to maintain a strong cultural, offer to help regenerate the local economy.
