Jason Bowers

Jason’s connection to Jamaica through his grandfather is not immediately apparent to most people who know him but he is proud of his blended heritage that also reflects other European nations such as Germany and Ireland. He feels that he has a privileged position of being more attuned to difference because of his cultural background. Recent conversations have led him to a new age of curiosity into his own past which was previously unexplored. He also talks about the new opportunities Hull has as the UK City of Culture and how that will bring positive change and development that he hopes people will embrace.
