We’ve recently heard that we’ve been successful in a £100,000 bid to the Arts Council. The funding is to deliver a series of events over three years.
We’re hoping that this money will help us offer a wider range of activities to a wider range of people. We intend to develop York Explore as a cultural hub in the heart of this great city of ours!
The first event in the pipeline is an animation project as part of the Summer Reading Challenge, which is booking now. Following that we’ll be hosting a variety of cultural activities like storytelling; artists residentials; slam poetry; plus digital workhops using 3D printers, robots, Raspberry Pi’s, and arduinos. All events will be advertised in the What’s On section.
During the project we plan to develop lasting relationships, new audiences, to increase our footfall, and to engage with our community membership. We hope to see you at an event soon.
