Hull Television Workshop

Humber Street Gallery, Hull, UK

In Summer 2022, Humber Street Gallery became Hull Television Workshop (HTW). Influenced by Sesame Workshop (SW), the American non-profit organisation that produced Sesame Street, contemporary artist Harold Offeh facilitated workshops with three Hull community groups to co-create HTW episodes.

Space 2 was part TV studio, editing suite, and production space. Focusing on workshops as the main format for enabling public engagement. Like Sesame Street, designed to help low-income families prepare for school, HTW had a strong social purpose. Each episode’s focus was led by people in Hull for people in Hull. HTW screened a variety of programmes, such as talk shows, documentaries and music shows.
