The British Council has supported a number of international projects in Hull as the UK City of Culture for 2017. 

Hull was announced the winner of UK City of Culture 2017 in 2013. The award is given every four years to a city that demonstrates the belief in the transformational power of culture.

The arts and cultural programme for the year celebrates the unique character of the city, its people, history and geography. In 2017, the programme runs from 1 January to 31 December and is split into four seasons, each with something distinctive and intriguing to say, and each created to challenge and thrill.

ADF has partnered with Hull 17 to deliver three landmark projects, all presenting international work: States of Play, in collaboration with the Crafts Council; A Hall for Hull, with the Royal Institute of British Architecs; and the Tool Appreciation Society, by artist Linda Brothwell and in collaboration with Thirteen Ways and Hull Libraries.
