and businesses across York & North Yorkshire.
Run by practitioners, with the support of other agencies, Creative North Yorkshire
is part of a programme of activity to raise the profile of York & North Yorkshire´s
creative industries, enabling them to play an increasing role in economic growth,
as well as contributing to tourism development and enhancing the quality of life
in the region.

Arts-based creative industries include visual arts, applied arts, designer fashion,
