What's it all about?
Edition One and Edition Two in 2022 explored sustainable futures through a quality performance programme and the breathtaking GAIA (Earth) installation and began to tell the story of Grimsby’s place in the world now. Edition Three in May 2023 continued the conversation, presenting ground-breaking artistic work as well as a chance to connect with the region’s creatives. Attracting 40,000 + audiences so far, Our Future Starts Here Edition Four takes place from 21 – 27 October.
We’ll be bringing new experiences to residents and visitors and making culture and creativity accessible, while aiming to enable understanding of how we all achieve ‘greener, healthier, happier futures’.
There’s also an engaging children’s programme on sustainability and future themes, offering a range of nature-based workshops and activities, plus we’re supporting a new generation of experimental music talent with performance and participation opportunities.
