York

As the UK’s only UNESCO Creative City of Media Arts, York seeks to promote a diverse and dynamic creative economy, leading the way in innovation. We understand cultural wellbeing as a vital aspect of what makes cities worth living and working in, and we embed culture and creativity in the making of sustainable places and life-sized neighborhoods across our city. The riches of two millennia of heritage provide a foundation on which we build the future. Residencies, commissions and festivals, including Aesthetica Short Film Festival, Mediale, and the work of University research projects such as XR Stories, create an international profile and a platform for international collaboration.
