Seen a colourful cab about town?
You may have noticed works of art springing up on street corners near you. We’ve been bringing to life the usually dull-looking street cabinets, which house internet cables and equipment, with the help of the local community.
Aspiring artists in Newland Avenue and local school children in East Hull have picked up their pens, paints and pritt sticks to create pretty pictures that now adorn the metal street cabs. Find out more about each of the projects below.
In 2013, we enlisted the help of the local community to turn ten of our green street cabinets into works of art, in celebration of the Lightstream rollout in the Newland Avenue and Beverley Road areas of Hull.
Members of the public were invited to submit their imaginative designs, whether they were painted, knitted or graffitied, in the hopes that they would be chosen to transform the street cabs.
To celebrate the rollout of Lightstream in East Hull in June 2016, local school children helped us to bring eight ordinary street cabinets to life.
Local artists and representatives from the Freedom Festival Arts Trust visited schools in East Hull to help pupils create designs along the theme of ‘Freedom’, which have been used to decorate street cabinets in the local area.
By Spring 2017, we’ll have rolled out fibre broadband to around 105,000 properties in Hull and the surrounding area.
