Discover and celebrate the creative artistic works and achievements of students from within isolation
We are proud to exhibit arts in isolation projects produced by University of Hull students for various modules within the School of the Arts. These are extraordinary achievements for students who have worked within the limitations and restrictions of isolation throughout this difficult time to produce such inspiring works. This showcase will be regularly updated with more student projects and voices from different departments.

Inspired by Ovid’s Metamorphoses, this project hopes to connect and aspire the people of Hull through utilising the arts to combat the loneliness and social isolation of the pandemic as well as emphasising the importance of the city’s ability to overcome the challenges it faces.
