Every year we aim to host two community exhibitions. These take place in the Streetlife Open Space – a flexible exhibition and activity space at the heart of the museum. It's your space to learn, create and get involved with Hull Museums.
The Open Space is home to a wide range of temporary exhibitions and events throughout the year. It's an opportunity for you to take ownership and programme the things you’d like to see for your community. As a result, the exhibition programme is an exciting mix. From independent, community-led displays to co-curated community exhibitions, developed through our projects.
The space itself is multifunctional. So even during exhibitions we can continue to host visitor activities and workshops.
You’ll find the Open space on the ground floor, at the centre of the Streetlife Museum.

If you’d like to show an exhibition in the Streetlife Open Space, we’d love to hear from you. We aim to show at least two independent community-led exhibitions each year.
