  3. Snooks Trail: Artist Call...

Design Closing Date – 23rd June, 5.00pm  

The Snooks Trail is a brand-new sculpture trail for York, set to guide people through York’s cobbled streets and hidden gardens in 2024, organised by Make It York with charity partner St Leonard’s Hospice.  

The trail will see up to 30 Snooks with Books around the city. Each sculpture will be sponsored by local businesses, who will be paired with an artist to create a bespoke design for each sculpture. 

Artists and illustrators across the country are being invited to take our Yorkshire bookish theme and submit designs which will be presented to our sponsors in July for the final selections. 

Our blank Snooks then undergo an artistic makeover before being strategically placed throughout the city of York from late February 2024 for an eight-week period.
