The Creative York Awards celebrate imagination, creativity, and innovation in our community.
The Creative York Awards shine a spotlight on the innovative spirit of the thriving Creative York community. Awards are presented to individuals, organizations, events, and businesses demonstrating creativity, outstanding achievements, or exceptional contributions to the community.
The 2017 Creative York Awards will be held on Friday, October 27, from 6-9pm at the Valencia Ballroom in historic downtown York, PA. Awards presented to businesses and individuals include: Business, Artist, Educator, the Guy Alosa President’s Award, and the Big Idea! Award. The Big Idea! Award is narrowed down to 3-4 nominees, which are then voted on by the community.
Proceeds from the event benefit Creative York’s arts education and creative programs for kids and adults in York County.
We are pleased to announce Noah Scalin of Another Limited Rebellion as our “Art of Innovation” Keynote Speaker. Noah Scalin is an artist, author, and activist. He founded Another Limited Rebellion in 2001 with the idea that he could make a living doing what he enjoyed and effect positive change in the world. Since then, Noah has traveled the world bringing his message of creative practice to everyone from incarcerated teenagers to Fortune 500 executives. Noah is the first ever artist-in-residence at the Virginia Commonwealth University’s School of Business. His artwork is collected internationally and has been exhibited in numerous museums and galleries. He is the author of six books on creativity, art & design—most recently Creative Sprint, which he co-wrote with his sister/business partner Mica Scalin.
