SPARK* is a project centred around positive social change. Our aim was to transform Piccadilly, a rundown and underutilised street in the centre of York and turn it into a vibrant, colourful destination that York could be proud of. We want local people to benefit from regeneration.
We have a complementary mix of entrepreneurs from different sectors, with the curation of retail, food and drink, workspace and arts and culture. This encourages collaboration, knowledge and business skills to create ambitious yet resilient start-ups and innovative companies that can change York - now and in the future.
We are home to the freshest selection of independent food and drink traders in York.
Shops - a healing clinic, hair and beauty salon and a clothing retailer.
SPARK* Studios - a network of spaces which includes a dedicated co-working space, a shared studio for resident makers, and a large multipurpose events space.
An aeroponic urban farm in association with the University of York.
A range of rotating community events.
