 #youareyork - a campaign for cultural democracy

#youareyork is a campaign led by ideas, inspired by sharing and driven by the notion that we are all creative. Taking the lead from #challengehull, a project instigated by 64 Million Artists for Hull City of Culture 2017, and following their Arts Council Report and guide (which you can read here), we want to challenge York’s residents to a year of creativity, beginning with York Design Week.

How it works (from 23rd October 2019)

  1. We have invited 52 organisations across York to create a challenge for #youareyork

  2. Each week on instagram and twitter, we will post one of these challenges

  3. You are invited to take part in that challenge, make it your own

  4. Then, SHARE your results, using the hashtag #youareyork

You Are York is a powerful statement that asks us to remember that we make our city, and that we can make good change happen within it.

We would love you to write about your experience, and get in touch, we want to share and champion creativity in all its forms. If you would like to set a challenge, or just talk about the project, please get in touch!
