Do you work with children and young people at a school or youth group? Would you like to help us record Hull’s Maritime story? Our fantastic volunteers have hundreds of brilliant maritime stories to tell and we are inviting children and young people from around Hull to help.

What is the project and how do we take part?

Children from primary and secondary schools and youth clubs around the city have the opportunity to submit a question for our volunteers. The best questions will be selected and used to create a filmed archive of the volunteers’ responses to the questions.

If you are interested in taking part, send an email letting us know which school or group you are from and approximately how many participants are likely to take part to hymc@hullcc.gov.uk by Tuesday 16 April.

Once you have submitted your interest, we will send you some background information about our volunteers, a guide to the sort of questions we are looking for and a form to submit your questions.

At the end of the project, the filmed interviews will be released and you will have the chance to submit your young people’s creative responses to the films, which we will share on our social media channels.

Who are your volunteers?

We are fortunate to have a wide range of volunteers with experience and stories to tell about deep sea trawling, on the docks and even some who work on the docks today. Your students’ questions can be targeted to any of our volunteers.

How will we access the videos?

The videos will initially be released on Hull Maritime’s YouTube channel.
