HIBERNATION INSPIRATION

We want to capture some of the amazing creativity of Hull’s young people through these strange days of isolation.

 So we’ve cooked up some Hibernation Inspiration activities for you to get stuck into at home – a little cache of things to play with, from drawing to cartooning to craft and stories.  We invite you to share the things that you make with us so we can hang them in the gallery for everyone to see.  

The weekly activity will be announced every Monday morning at 10am from 27 April until 29 June. You’ll have until 7pm on the following Friday to make your thing, then send a picture of your creation to hello@thebigmalarkeyfestival.com or share with us on social media using the hashtag #HibernationInspiration 

Each week we’ll post as many of your creations as we can so everyone can enjoy them. We’ll use this gallery as a record of our fantastic children and young people in Hull, and how they have helped everyone get through the coronavirus crisis.
