Ignite Yorkshire is a group of open-minded, creative and enterprising young people. We take inspiration from the industrial past to develop new skills for the future. Our aim is to change the way we understand and connect with Yorkshire’s heritage, and spark an industrial revolution for the 21st century.

Ignite Yorkshire is supported by a partnership of IVE (lead partner), Canal Connections, National Coal Mining Museum for England, North Yorkshire Youth, Sheffield Industrial Museums Trust, Swinton Lock Activity Centre and Canal and River Trust. We work in Yorkshire with young people aged 14-25 to re-forge the connection between industrial heritage and a new generation.

Our work is funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund's Kick the Dust Programme.
