Making A Difference in York County & Beyond

Through arts education, gallery experiences, and outreach programs, Creative York strives to make a positive impact in our local community and beyond. With a focused effort on serving at-risk youth in the City of York, we have seen firsthand how art can serve as a tool for self-expression and increased confidence. We are proud to make the arts accessible to everyone and meet the needs of our thriving, vibrant community.
