News/September 2016

Phone boxes start to ring across the city.

You answer the call. A vehicle stops alongside you. A voice asks you to get in.

It’s 2097. We are on the cusp of a new century and you decide where we go next as we invite you to re-imagine two cities 80 years into the future.

We’re excited to announce 2097: We Made Ourselves Over, an ambitious international collaboration bringing together Hull UK City of Culture 2017 and Aarhus European Capital of Culture 2017. Between now and late 2017, we’ll be working with communities across both cities to create a vision of possible futures, culminating in a series of public happenings.
