Make it Great, Make it York

Make it York’s mission is to show the world how hot and happening York is as a place to live, study, work and visit. One of the creative ways they are doing this is by working with us here at Spacehive to create their very own York Hive.

The York Hive is a great way to showcase the exciting projects happening across the city. It brings local people, community groups and businesses together to create and back inspirational projects which the whole city can enjoy.

So whether you want to light up York cathedral (like in our awesome photo above), create a Yorkshire pudding feast day or build something entirely new – this new Hive is the place for you.

Already there are some great projects live on the hive, from the soap box race through Micklegate, the poignant Rigg Monument, harvesting abundant fruit with Edible York, and an arts barge to a community football club for the Hamilton Panthers.

Want to transform your city in powerful positive ways? Become a Spacehive partner and create a Hive for the places you live and love.
