AMY JOHNSON FESTIVAL:
1 JULY – 6 SEPTEMBER 2016

2016 is the 75th anniversary of the death of Amy Johnson, Hull’s flying heroine. Born in Hull in 1903, Amy Johnson CBE was one of the most influential and inspirational women of the twentieth century. She was the first woman to fly solo from England to Australia and set a string of other records throughout her career.

The programme will focus on, reflect, or be inspired by five key themes:

The life and flying achievements of Amy Johnson, Telling her story, key moments in her life, her personal struggles and achievements. Women’s equality and liberation. The freedom of the skies – the growth and impact of aviation. The role of aviation in international communications, in widening horizons, making the world a smaller and more accessible place for many more people. Aircraft engineering, the physics of flight.

The culture of the 1930s: Music, fashions, literature, visual arts, architecture, domestic life – aspects of Thirties

World cultures – then and now

EVENTS:

A major site specific performance by Ensemble 52

an exhibition of contemporary British art of the period,

the opera ‘Amy’s Last Dive’ to be performed at Hull Truck,

A biographical exhibition – A Portrait of Amy – sourced from extensive Hull Daily Mail archives and beyond,

Flight Path – a commissioned suite of music and visual imagery reflecting the countries on her route to Australia,

‘Engineered’ – a major exhibition of sculpture with Leonardo da Vinci ‘flying machines’ as the centrepiece augmented with work by contemporary artists for whom engineering is central to their practice.
