EYESeeMe Hull – Crossing Borders Exhibition

Since arriving back in the UK it has been non stop with the more formal side of the charity and as usual playing catch up!… however, I am delighted to announce that we have two forthcoming and most exciting exhibitions to look forward to this year.  Hull of course is the UK City of culture for 2017, and so was delighted to work on a project this time with our very own children in my hometown of Kingston upon Hull which is in East Yorkshire.  Teaming up with the amazing Hull Children’s University charity,
