Man's life transformed after falling into shark infested water


'Days that Made Us’ is a creative project run by C4Di member, My Pockets. The project challenges people to choose and describe the one day of their life that made them who they are. The most recent phase of the project has worked with members of the Merchant Navy in Hull. The stories include a man who fell into shark infested waters and watched his ship sail away over the horizon, a teenage boy who bought a gun to shoot his own father and a seaman who fell in love and never returned to the ocean.

These stories have been supported by Roots and Wings, Hull Libraries, Untold Stories and the James Reckitt Library Trust.
