YUMI brings people and Cultures Together

York Unifying Multicultural Initiatives – is a voluntary, intercultural network.  We provide opportunities for people who have come to live in York to meet with the local community, make friends, develop confidence and feel valued members of York community.  We’re open to everyone so that means YOU!! We support people with different cultural roots, languages and walks of life to share skills, learn from each other, celebrate traditions.

Voices 'on tour' creative writing workshop is back for a very special family session at our magical garden at Fulford Cross Allotments on Saturday 27th July, 11.30 - 2pm.

Let's write, tell stories & get creative in the fresh air at our magical space. Children are welcome. No experience necessary.

If you don't fancy writing bring your favourite pens, pencils or paints & get arty in our beautiful garden. Or see how green fingered you are... make a paper plant pot, sow some salad & help us harvest veg.

Bring a picnic & join us for a bring and share lunch.
