Model City


Model City is an immersive audio installation that will take over King Edward Street this February half term. In this original soundscape by BAFTA award-winning composer Dan Jones, the Children of Hull will take listeners and passers-by to alternate realities.

The installation will run daily from 14-23 February 2020 from 10am until 6pm and is designed as an immersive experience that shoppers and passers-by can stumble across as they go about their day in the city centre – or take a seat and lose themselves in the city’s children’s visions of the future.

Ranging from high energy moments through to contemplative sections that are more observational of life on the busy street, the piece will offer a different experience depending on the time of day.

In addition to the installation, a Model City pop-up space will be open daily from Saturday 1 February – Sunday 23 February from 10am – 6pm at 23 King Edward Street. In the space people will be able to learn more about the creation process, take part in free family activities and have your say on what would make your perfect Model City.
