Creative & Cultural Music Project
The Creative & Cultural Music Project is one of The Creative & Cultural Organisation community initiatives in Hull UK. Utilising popup space to provide rehearsal rooms, recording studios, music workshop space, music industry start-up support, Arts Awards, equipment and events.
The World Drumming Network, formerly known as The World Drumming Association, was formed at WOMAD Festival UK 2008. We work together as a charitable worldwide community of Drummers, nurturing talent, supporting educators, raising standards, creating opportunities for people to access tuition and equipment, who would not normally be able to. Connecting drummers, sharing information and adding value.
The WDN is sponsored and project managed by The Creative and Cultural Company based in Hull UK City Of Culture. Partners include Universal Zulu Nation UK & Europe, Sonar Drums, Create and Express Ltd & the Professional Drum Teachers Guild of America. We have a thriving Facebook Group, who share news, videos, pictures, audio, lesson plans and just fun stuff too:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/worlddrummingnetwork/ By joining the WDN Group, you are accessing an international community of professional drummers, teachers, schools, facilitators, session percussionists, drum companies, students, and enthusiasts. The group is open to all percussionists, regardless of style, age or ability. From Electric Drum Kit to Irish Bodhran and all the shakers in-between…
We believe that Drumming is universal. It transcends borders and verbal language barriers. It can be enjoyed in many ways by people of all ages and abilities around the world.
Drumming creates entertainment, employment, focus, therapy, challenge, engagement, memory, coordination, creativity, acceptance, self-expression, achievement, qualification, self-esteem and a lot of fun.
At the World Drumming Network, we believe the oldest, simplest instrument in the world is still the most magical. Like 8000 years of generations before us.
There has been loads going on down Brook Street in our Creative & Cultural Music Project space.
Unit 45 Recordings and Create & Express have developed their practice’s in the centre this year despite lockdown.
Lots of bands have rehearsed and recorded upstairs and the BAME vs COVID 19 project has been run from the downstairs studio.
Look out for the EP out on 19th December.
The Creative & Cultural Organisation can now be found at 64 Prospect Street, Hull, HU2 8PW

Hull International Photography Festival (HIPFest)
Unfortunately, it is time to make the inevitable announcement. Hull International Photography Festival (HIPfest) will not be happening this year. This would have been the seventh year of what has become the UK’s biggest annual photography festival. An event that has brought many of the biggest names in the photographic art world to exhibit in Hull, whilst teaching and nurturing new talent locally.
The shifting situation with COVID19 has made planning very difficult and some artists would rather show their work when footfall is likely to be higher next year. However, the main difficulty has been the loss of our main gallery space and festival venue, as Princes Quay suffered difficulties during lockdown. We had to moved The Creative & Cultural Organisation out of the centre and we are now developing a new home at Prospect Centre. Hull Independent Photography Club (HIPclub) has continued and now has studios in our new space behind Amy Johnsons Statue on Prospect Street, to continue teaching photographers from age 8 up to adults.
Many thanks for all of your support every previous year and look out for updates about next years festival and future exhibitions on our website
