The Launch Event took place at The National Coal Mining Museum where a real branding iron was made out of the new Ignite Yorkshire logo by the museums blacksmiths. There were also lots of celebratory activities such as “make your own merch’, talks and sharing about how Cactus Crew worked with Lee Goater to develop the new Brand plus underground tours and branded cakes for the Miners.
Ignite Yorkshire is a National Lottery Heritage Fund #KicktheDust project run by @IVESupportIVE to connect Yorkshire's young people and industrial heritage.
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.
