About 'HEAR in Hull'

Humber NHS Foundation Trust and charity Artlink have joined forces with Hull City of Culture organisers to develop HEAR in Hull, a Big Lottery Fund-backed initiative.

This innovative arts project is designed to promote understanding of how to listen to people who stammer

Creating an understanding, building confidence and challenging perceptions, the project works collaboratively with people who stammer, their families, therapists, teachers, artists and members of the public.

Project highlights include:

  • messages from people who stammer who were asked to 'tell the world' about their experience of stammering;
  • sound recordings of people from Hull listening and reacting to someone who stammers,
  • portraits of famous people who stammer created by art students, and
  • an animation (above) created by Fuzzfeed’s Peter Snelling which is based on conversations with people who stammer.
