Stuart Goulden, York Guild of Media Arts

In December 2014 York was designated a UNESCO City of Media Arts - the UK’s first - in recognition of the city’s talent base and ambitious plans for the future.

York has welcomed a new guild to recognise York’s thriving creative community and those who support them. The Guild of Media Arts joins the seven other ancient guilds in the city and is the first of its kind in the UK. With a mission to unlock the full benefits of UNESCO designation and to champion York’s growing creative credentials, the Guild is hoping to inspire a new generation of creative adventurers in the city and drive continued growth in the sector.
