About Us: Hull

The About Us competition invites young people across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales to enter a poem or animation Scratch project – or to enter both – around the theme of ‘connectivity and the universe’ reflecting on the many ways in which life across the universe is interwoven. Participation is open to all young people in the UK aged 4 to 18. The winning entries will be featured in bespoke multimedia installations that will accompany a spectacular live projection mapping show that will tour the UK in Spring 2022 and the poems will also be published in a dedicated digital anthology.


Alongside the UK-wide competition, young people from each of these locations will also be invited to participate in extra activities exploring their creativity. In January and February 2022, children in 50 primary schools will take part in bespoke Scratch coding and poetry workshops, delivered respectively by Stemettes and The Poetry Society, showcasing the meeting points between science, technology and poetry.


About Us

About Us is a large-scale public event for all ages that combines live shows and multimedia installations to tell the story of the infinite ways in which we are connected to the universe, natural world, and one another from the Big Bang to the present day.
