Let’s Talk About York #talkyork – fresh and challenging opinions wanted!

Make It York together with partners across the city is working to shape and promote York as a better place to live, work, invest and visit.

We are a key partner, with the universities, in a place branding project being led by City of York Council, funded by Leeds City Region Business Rates Pool.

The ultimate aims of the project are to attract inward investment and high spending visitors, to rebalance the economy and enhance the perception of York.

Place narrative can enable cities to shape their image and reputation, as well as effect and influence positive change in how they develop and prosper. By working together with partners across York, and benefiting from world-leading experts on brand, we aim to ensure our marketing is consistent, communicating a strong narrative about York that, collectively, we can project onto a world-wide stage.

We are currently gathering views about what the city means to different people. Please take a few minutes to do the survey and share with others. We want to hear from everyone with an opinion: residents, visitors, businesses, students – fresh and challenging voices are welcome.
